It is the first Norwegian full-length movie done in the Sami language in 1987 and based on an old legend. In Sami its original title is Ofelaš, in Norwegian: Veiviseren, in English: Pathfinder.
Written and directed by Nils Gaup. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1988. The film inspired Hollywood to remake it in 2007, but it was presented as an action adventure story set in North America and appeared to be far away from its original.
