Sami sex films? Hehe. I wish! No, only one that springs to mind is Rymdinvasion i Lappland. But that is a Swedish/American production.

There are some biker samis in Free Jimmy, but that is an animation.

Kill Buljo has a Sami setting, it is a spoof on Kill Buljo. Kill Buljo 2 is set in Thailand thou

There is also the odd little dark comedy called Svidd Neger, translated that would be Scorched Negro. About a black man who wants to be a Sami. Got a pretty good soundtrack from Ulver, and a sort of cult status.

I never heard of Svidd Neger. It's funny in Finland there's a lot of films that are set in Lapland. And surprisingly many also are "cult" films, like Noidan Kirot, Valkoinen peura, the Villi Pohjola films and the shot in Norway's Lapland the Last Border.

Are any of these easy to find?

I bet Finland has a bit more of that free spirit, while Norway has been a little to controlled by state grants. We have had very little production on the side, a few odd balls here and there, but in general it has been grant regulated.

Teuvo Tulio's Sensuela is wildest Finnish cult film ever! You should start with it. It's out on DVD with English subs! And it's a Sami sex film for you, ehehehe!!!

Valkoinen peura is the best Finnish horror film! And it's out with English subs in French. Also the Last Border is out on DVD and it's in English. The rest are not so easy... See the "Finnish films" discussion for more nice info and films

This reminds me. How many horror films are there in Norway? Can you do a list of all.

State grants rule in Finland also. But there (are) were free spirits like Teuvo Tulio and Visa Mäkinen who worked outside the system. I think I read somewhere that Norwegian grants system was somehow region locked, and that's why there were not so many films made?
