A 14 min documentary portrait of a Sami artist living alone in the untouched wilderness of Lapland in northern Sweden. The film captures a lifestyle full of freedom and reverence for nature where Roland finds a never-ending inspiration for his art.
The film was screened Feb – Apr ‘08 at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle in combination with an exhibition of Roland’s paintings. Thereafter it was chosen to represent Sweden in the EuroDocs festival in Los Angeles where it was the opening film. See: http://www.americancinematheque.com/eurodocs08/calendar.html

In an undisturbed corner of the world Roland has found his oasis. Through him we explore the possibility to live a life in another rhythm in which convenience has been replaced with an unbroken connection with nature.
This story of an artist living in solitude in the wilderness of northern Sweden goes beyond showing the unique heritage of a Sami indigenous person. It captures a lifestyle that inspires a freedom we rarely get to experience anymore. -Linda Blomqvist, Director
The Scandinavian landscape with its muted midwinter atmosphere, and the summer nights with their enchanting light intensify the feeling of being one with nature… – Roland Pantze, Artist
