When filmmakers Jessica Oreck and Rachael Teel started looking for modern-day cowboys to follow for their new documentary, they didn't start in the American West. Instead, they looked to Finland (map).
Oreck and Teel are fascinated by how people interact with the world around them, and their film, Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, brings viewers into the lives of Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki. The two brothers lead a collective of herders who manage the last group of wild reindeer in Finland.
The film was nominated for best documentary feature at this year'sTribeca Film Festival.
