About
(Aleksandr Ptushko, Finland & USSR, 1959, 91 min, in Finnish with English subtitles)

Based on the Finnish national epic Kalevala, director Aleksandr Ptushkos ravishing, mystical fantasy tells the story of a sinister witch Louhi who covets the Sampo, a magical, rainbow-colored mill that can produce endless salt, grain, and gold. When the hero Lemminkäinen attempts to stop her, Louhi steals the sun, plunging the world into eternal darkness.

A Finnish/Soviet co-production and shot like its predecessor Ilya Muromets in gorgeous CinemaScope, Sampo features some of Ptushkos most surreal and fantastical imagery: a glowing red horse plowing a field of vipers; a boat of fire with a stags head; a weeping mother literally walking across the sea to find her lost son. With its witchs incantations and repeated scenes of forging magical items  Give me fire for the furnace from the nave of the sky!  there is a Macbeth-like occult force to the film as well, underscored by the raging blue-gray seas and rock-strewn landscapes.

Accessibility

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at suji@nwfilmforum.org
