SVONNI VS SKATTEVERKET

ENG TITLE: Svonni vs the Swedish Tax agency

DOC | 2020 | 5 MIN | SÁMI, SWEDISH

A Sámi woman fights for her right to claim a tax deduction against the purchase of a dog. Why the Swedish authorities fail to recognize the dog's use as a reindeer herding tool versus a pet opens up a larger discussion about Indigenous rights and economic discrimination in this humorous takedown of the Swedish government's ignorance of Sámi culture.
