Stefan Jarl – Samernas land AKA Land Of The Lapps (1994)

Quote:
This short film is only thirteen minutes long, but it is a razor-sharp depiction of civilization pushing out Europe’s last wilderness in Northern Sweden. The white man is hunting ptarmigan, enormous exer-tions are being expended, watercourses are running dry and forests are being devastated. Thirteen minutes about a world in change. But un-fortunately not for the better.

Description: They Call Us Misfits follows a group of teenagers as they become recipients, then victims, of Sweden’s welfare-state economy. The group eschews traditional social values, engaging in selling drugs and smugly criticizing those who adhere to a schedule and a steady job. This documentary-style film interviews young people who feel disenfranchised and out of place in the world but show little if any ambition to improve their station in life.
