Kaisa's Enchanted Forest is the story of the remarkable friendship between Kaisa Gauriloff, director Katja Gauriloff's great grandmother, a legendary Skolt Sámi storyteller, and Russian-born Swiss writer Robert Crottet (1908–1987) and the fate of Skolt Sámi, displaced during WWII. The film fuses sequences of animation, Sámi legends, and rare archival footage in a tale of survival with Crottet as the only advocate of the Skolt Sámi during troubled times.
