Amanda Kernell’s powerful coming-of-age drama was a moving audience favourite at LIFF 2017 and the film also won this year’s prestigious Lux Prize for Best European Film. A teenage reindeer herder in 1930s Sweden faces a society rife with prejudice and discrimination as she is forcibly removed from her family and sent to a state boarding school.
Leeds International Film Festival Audience Favourite
Toronto International Film Festival Official Selection
“SAMI BLOOD is a beautiful, haunting film, anchored by a startlingly accomplished lead performance. It has the feeling of a distant memory – one that is neither entirely pleasant nor painful, but persistent.” – Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post
“Sparrock’s performance is courageous and compelling. Quiet and observant despite that rage and will, Elle-Marja learns from each slight and wound she endures.” – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
Leeds International Film Festival
LIFF is a portal for audiences to discover the real world of film that exists beyond regular film exhibition. LIFF primarily supports outstanding new talent and established talent that has not received deserved exposure in the UK. LIFF considers narrative, documentary and animated films, in feature-length and short formats, and in multiple genres and from all countries.
Founded in 1987 Leeds International Film Festival is renowned as a dynamic event with a reputation for challenging and innovative programming. Last year LIFF presented a huge variety of exceptional films at over 300 screenings and events at 30 venues over 15 days.
Vue is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
