This film is a short music video about the "dream of freedom from Western civilization's oppression of minorities" as Mari Boine - a norwegian and sami song writer - described this video on her personal website. Norway and Sweden has a somewhat "difficult" history when one is looking at their relationships to the Sami people in both countries. Nevertheless it is important to mention that the common history has another (much smaller) dimension than the discrimination and killing of native americans by settlers from Europe.
The video is from 1997. As we got to knew in the meanwhile oppression of minorities is not only a speciality of western civilizations. So one could see this video as a message against oppression wherever they take place.
