Cowboys of the Arctic

Deep in the wilderness of Finnish Lapland, far above the Arctic Circle, brothers Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki herd the last wild reindeer.  The filmmaker, ethnobiologist Jessica Oreck, has gained renown for her study through film of the way humans interact with nature.  The documentary is not yet available to the public, but was nominated for best documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.  A short clip is available here, and I highly recommend taking a look and considering seeing it in its entirety when it comes out!
