MAJ DORIS

This documentary spotlights the eccentric, indigenous living legend Maj-Doris Rimpi, born in 1943. Twenty years ago, she had another kind of life, traveling the world and promoting the cultural legacy of the Sámi people. Presently, Maj-Doris lives alone on a farm above the Arctic Circle in Sweden. She keeps reindeer, but she's also a sought-after artist, painter and actress (best known for her role in 2016's SAMI BLOOD). Last winter was filled with hard work, and she almost gave up. This winter, Maj-Doris gets help from an unexpected source, but does she have the energy to continue like this? Jon Blåhed's sensual and beautifully-paced film is a portrait of a fascinating life. DIR/SCR Jon Blåhed; PROD Göran Hedemalm. Sweden, 2018, color, 73 min. In Swedish and Sami with English subtitles. NOT RATED
