Watch: Sameblod 2016 123movies, Full Movie Online – In 1930s Lapland, the 14-year-old indigenous Sámi girl, Elle Marja, leaves the wild ancestral grounds and the family’s reindeer camp to attend a remote draconian boarding school along with her younger sister, Njenna. However–as the bright rural student pursues a denied education and an opportunity, desirous of integrating herself into the modern Swedish society–a painful visit by a team of anthropologists paired by a traumatic experience will be the harsh reminders of an ever-present brutal prejudice and a deep-seated racism. Uppsala promises a bright future in the bustling metropolis, but to pass as a regular Swedish teenager, Elle Marja will have to make a greater sacrifice than just changing her name. But, can an outcast sever ties and renounce his proud lineage so easily?.
Plot: Elle Marja, 14, is a reindeer-breeding Sami girl. Exposed to the racism of the 1930s and phrenological examinations at her boarding school, she starts dreaming of another life. To achieve this other life she has to become someone else and break all ties with her family and culture.

Beautifully sensitive film.
A film that puts you inside this girls head. And that is it’s biggest achievement. And then we’re on ride with her through a very new time in her life. And it’s an enjoyable ride. Beautifully casted.
Another example of colonialism against Indigenous people.
I found this film to be all too familiar with how colonialism does not do any good for its own local Indigenous folks!! No matter where you are in the world, you will find some form of racist colonial agenda working against its own Indigenous people. Unfortunately, the Sami people of Scandinavia were never immune to its horrors resulting from its anti-Indigenous sentiment. This film looks at how Swedish society caused that poor girl to hate her own Sami heritage while also causing to hate herself. After she left her village to try and live in mainstream society, she thought that finding solace with that Swedish young man would have made her life a little easier but it only did the opposite as the boy’s parents forced their son to kick her out of their home. Of course, this only made things worse for the girl as she only ended up hating her Sami heritage even more. As a result, she ultimately decided to just pack up and leave her family and friends. She should have never left her village in the first place since she was not the least bit ready to leave. She was too young and inexperienced to do so. This is really a sad story and I blame Swedish society for not making her feel welcome with the exception of that one boy who took her in. Even then, the boy’s parents didn’t want her there. Anyway, this is a good film nonetheless. That’s why I give this one a 7 out of 10.
