Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, documentary, not rated, in Finnish with subtitles, The Screen, 2.5 chiles

The notion that the earth still holds remote pockets where people exist in the natural world the way generations of their ancestors did is only marginally true. The Finnish Laplanders featured in Jessica Oreck’s unusual documentary Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys survive, as people have for centuries, on the herds of reindeer that populate the woods and tundra above the Arctic Circle. Yet the tools of their existence, up to and including a helicopter, would not be part of any tradition that their forebears would recognize.
