Documentarian Jessica Oreck brings us into Finnish Lapland, offering us a glimpse into the lives of brothers Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki. The two men are present day cowboys, employing helicopters and snowmobiles in the practice of the titular region’s long held reindeer herding tradition. Through the film- maker’s scenic and unhurried vista we come to find that the continuation of traditional cultures teeters between the firm embracing of heritage and the yielding receptiveness to the ever changing needs of its people.
