Me and My Little Sister

6 66 minutes 2016

Me and My Little Sister is a personal film about sisterhood, homosexuality and the search for acceptance. The film director Suvi and her sister Kaisa are two indigenous Sámi girls from Northern Finland. In their home village, Utsjoki, religious prejudices and conservative values haunt the gay peoples' lives on a daily basis. Suvi feels powerless not being able to help her sister face her community's taboo on homosexuality. This is especially important now, as Kaisa has decided to have a baby.
