Filmmaker Jessica Oreck discusses her film Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, which follows one year in the life of a family of reindeer herders in Finnish Lapland. Speaking with Ryan Van Winkle at the Glasgow Film Festival, she discusses the importance of ritual, silence, slaughter and the encroachment of modern technology on the life of the reindeer herders. Check out the interactive accompaniment to the film. We also feature the track ‘Dogwood’ by Jaron Freeman-Fox from his latest album The Opposite of Everything.
