Three Sámi men travel to the capital of Norway. One of them is wearing gákti, the Sámi traditional costume, to attract Norwegian women. The second one believes it unethical to do this, and the third is bitter that he doesn't attract women when he wears the gákti. Indigenous Police is a Sámi short film told with humor and political sting. It is an identity satire about how people, both the Sámi and the majority population, consciously and unconsciously define what is the right way to be Sámi
Sami director Egil Pedersen grew up in a small village far up north in Norway. He made his first films, Lego and clay animation, as an early teen with his father’s Super 8 film camera. He graduated from The Norwegian Film School in 2002. Since then he has been developing different unique ways of eye-catching storytelling using absurd humour, disturbing moods, visual effects, majestic images and is always on the lookout for the next twisted idea.
