We meet young Sami Boy Aigin, on his way home after hunting in the mountains. The Sami people are peaceful and are trying to survive in the frozen wilderness. Aigin witnesses his family being brutally killed by the Tjudene - rival nomads coming from the east.
Pathfinder was a sensation when it premiered. Not only was this an action movie that could compare with the American ones, but it was also a story about morality and courage, while putting a minority in the spotlight.
Nominated for Oscar best international feature film in 1987
