“I was very inspired by the poem to Synnøve Persen, which is the title of the film. The poem to me is about to feel a strong connection with the nature here. And that strong bond with the tundra has something to do with those who were here before us, our ancestors. It is their subtle existence you can feel, if you really listen.” — Elle Sofe Sara, director and choreographer.
