A coming-of-age story of a brother and a sister from Amsterdam. The film follows the siblings for one school year in a village school in Finnish Lapland and how their identities and world views develop afterwards. Filmed over the course of eleven years, ‘A Year on the Sacred Mountain‘ is a documentary film about childhood and growing up, and about the widely-praised Finnish school.
