Cartographer by Marek Ranis investigates the life and activism of Sámi artist and poet Hans Ragnar Mathisen. He has devoted his life, art and literary work to defending indigenous culture and the rights of indigenous people.
The film and artist talk that follows focus on how indigenous nations’ face dramatic changes in the environment while simultaneously striving to preserve their cultures and traditional lifestyles.
