Geir Tore Holm: The Right To The Land And The Water

Festival Details - "Geir Tore Holm: The Right To The Land And The Water"...

Part of London Literature Festival

Watch a film centred on our relationship with the natural world, as Geir Tore Holm delves into ownership of land and water in Finnmark, Norway.

The protagonist narrates the thoughts and observations of public activists, artists, lawyers, politicians, historians and land users affected by the Finnmark Act. This legislation came as a result of the long fight for Sami rights to land and culture allowing the Nordic countries’ indigenous people a home in the northeastern part of Norway.

Holm fuses different voices into a shared story, exploring how the local knowledge of Finnmark land stands at odds with the public regulation of the use of land and water. The Right to the Land and the Water articulates the complexities of indigenousness, ownership and justice.

Geir Tore Holm lives and works in Skiptvet, Norway.
