Synopsis

Beyond the Arctic Circle, the town of Kiruna, in Sweden, must relocate: the iron mine over which it was built is threatening to swallow it up. A fissure in the town hall’s main lobby is a reminder that Kiruna’s days are numbered. Patterns thus gradually appear, sketching out the unavoidable destiny of the site, soundtracked by the pipe organ of the church, one of the few buildings that will actually be relocated and not destroyed. Stocklassa creates a subtle film around three protagonists who must also rebuild their identities: a high school girl rediscovers her Sami roots, a young Yemeni refugee hopes to obtain asylum, a nostalgic teacher struggles to accept the upcoming destruction of his town.
