Norwegian film at European Film Festival in Yangon

Norway participated for the first time in the European Film Festival in Yangon, Myanmar held from the  4th to 14th October 2012.

The 21st edition of the festival was organised by the German Embassy in Yangon, and featured ten films from six European countries, including Norway with the 2008 Norwegian film The Kautokeino Rebellion.

Directed by Nils Gaup, the film is based on the true story of the riots in Kautokeino, Northern Norway, in 1852, in response to the Norwegian exploitation of the indigenous Sami community at that time.
