The film "Eallin lea guovttesuorat niehku - Life is a two-way dream" shows the way in a world undergoing rapid change, with polarisation and globalisation going in many directions. We are in an age marked by adoration of youth, fixation on the present and extreme individualism. What we do today will affect the way people live in the future. The wisdom from the shaman’s worldview from the old Sami religion helps weave together another interpretation and story.
