Kiruna ‒ A Brand New World

Greta Stocklassová

Czech Republic 2019, 87 min

In English, Arabic and Sami, with English subtitles


Beyond the Arctic Circle, the town of Kiruna, Sweden must relocate: the iron mine over which it was built is threatening to swallow it up. To continue the mine’s activity, it has been decided to move the town three kilometres. Like the mine, the underground giant hidden beneath the inhabitants’ feet, the film digs patiently, with precision and determination, discreetly weakening the fine organisation of the authorities and the smooth public consensus that is entirely oriented towards the dream of a more beautiful and modern town.
