DE GODE HJELPERAN (THE SECRET HELPERS)

56619925

Media Folder: 

In the north there are people with special abilities. They are called helpers. According to the Sámi tradition, they have existed for centuries. They have healed, relieved pain, stopped bleeding and helped people in many ways – with love, in secret, without being payed. The good helpers are still here, in our modern world, they are hidden – but not gone. What kind of knowledge do they possess – is it a gift, or could anyone learn how to heal? The audience gets invited into the most secret spaces of Sámi culture, and we try to learn – on film – how bleeding is stopped.
