Stolen is the first Sámi feature film Netflix has produced. Directed by Elle Márjá Eira, the film is based on the book by Ann-Helén Laestadius.

Contemporary important narrative

It is a remarkable day when a Sámi-language film premieres on Netflix, reaching potentially 260 million viewers worldwide. Stolen presents a contemporary important narrative, and we are thrilled that audiences will have the opportunity to experience this important Sámi film, says Anne Lajla Utsi, Managing director of the International Sami Film Institute.

The film features a Sámi cast and crew. Cinematography is by Ken Are Bongo, with Ann-Helén Laestadius as co-producer. Starring roles include Elin Oskal, Magnus Kuhmunen, and Lars-Ánte Wasara.

The release of the First Sámi Feature Film on Netflix means a lot to the Sámi film industry. With many Sámi actors as main characters, using the Sámi language, and many Sámi filmmakers playing a central role in the film, it warms my film-loving heart, adds Utsi.

The film was pre-screened in Kiruna on the 7th and in Stockholm on April 9th. The primary language of the film is Northern Sámi. Produced by Netflix, the film will be available only on the platform from April 12th.

Netflix is the world’s largest streaming site, with over 260 million users worldwide.
