The Christmas Troll
Inger Marja and her best friend Kathrina are from two different cultures: the indigenous Sámi culture and the Norwegian culture. Inger Marja is dreaming about the perfect Christmas with the perfect Christmas tree, like the big tree they have at Kathrina’s house. But her alcoholic mother can’t afford to buy a real tree. Perhaps the fantasy about Christmas is sometimes better than the Christmas itself? The Christmas Troll takes us behind the facade, bringing us closer to a sore and difficult reality that is extra visible during the holidays. This reality exists in the world’s most prosperous countries for many – no matter their culture.
