#Tjaetsie (knowhowknow) is a visual sound poem, a political investigation into human-ocean relationship. Tjaetsie means water in South Sámi language. The film takes us to the inhabitants both in and around the sea, a journey through vulnerability and hybris. With the human-affected time as our backdrop, the mythical figurine "Gorrijh gujne" (Spawning Lady), of the Froan sea, representing the ancient forces of ocean. The original sound is composed by Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje.
