Pathfinder by Nils Gaup
“Pathfinder” is based on a 12th-century legend. Filled with action and drama, it tells the story of a young boy who, having seen his parents and little sister slaughtered by a riding party of Tsjudes (a much feared tribe from what is today Northern Russia) is taken prisoner and forced to act as a pathfinder for the raiders. Against all odds, the boy manages to trick his captors and lead them over a cliff to a violent death. “Pathfinder” rates a footnote in film history as it is the first feature production ever to be shot in the Sami language.
