Kiruna – A Brand New World

Iron ore mining is causing the northern Swedish town of Kiruna to sink into the ground. 6000 inhabitants must move a few kilometres away from their lifelong home, taking houses, town hall, and church with them.

The impressive relocation project holds the promise of a new and wonderful future, but it is very painful for a number of the locals. Through the eyes of student Maja, Yemeni refugee Abdalrahman, and ageing teacher Timo, we see a sort of eerie timelessness in the streets and houses soon to vanish; a hiatus filled with hopes of a fresh start as well as the doubts which come with uprooting from familiar surroundings, as departure comes ever closer.
