Wajstedt: “The Háldi is a forest creature that may lure children into the woods. Is it only a part of Sámi mythology or is it as real as you and I?

Who is she? Why would she want to lure children out into the woods? Is she evil or egotistical? Or is she maybe just lonely …?

EADNI, which means mother, is a multi-layered visual saga that provokes thought. Focusing on Háldi, the whole story is a creation story with the hope that we will protect nature and ensure that the eternal cycle continues.”

Eadni was presented at The Sámi Pavillion in Venice 2022. International Sámi Film Institute (ISFI) announced in 2022 the world premiere of ÁRRAN 360° as part of ´The Sámi Pavilion´ project at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia on 26 August 2022. A new initiative realised by International Sámi Film Institute (ISFI) in collaboration with Norwegian Film Institute (NFI) and Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), ÁRRAN 360° is part of the extended programme for the historic transformation of the Nordic Pavilion by ´The Sámi Pavilion´ project at the Biennale Arte 2022 in Venice.
