Winds of destruction (long version)

Film by Andersson, Henrik and Petri Storlöpare /May-Britt Öhman

For who is wind power environmentally friendly and sustainable? It is not sustainable for animals that are forced to share their territory with the up to 200 meter tall concrete constructions, with huge wings of metals, the access roads. This is the story of Henrik Andersson, Gällivare forest sámi village, who works to protect – through research and challenging decision makers – the reindeer and other animals from a destructive power production mode.
A supradisciplinary research project.
