Amanda Kernell’s powerful coming-of-age debut was an audience favourite at LIFF 2017 and also won the European Parliament’s prestigious Lux Prize for Best European Film. Elle, 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. Elle must decide whether to remain with her people or pursue the education and opportunities otherwise denied her.
