POACHERS

Norway, 1981 (MIFF 1983)

Director: Hans Otto Nicolayssen

Martin, a young man doing his military service, has to face his first confrontation with a crucial dilemma: a military shooting range has been installed on the common grazing grounds of the village. When a sheep is shot dead, the farmers take legal action against the Ministry of Defence. Martin is among the young soldiers who have been sent to the range for target practice. The confrontation with a protest delegation of farmers, headed by Martin's own father, creates a conflict that can't be easily solved.
