THE EMIGRANTS is the story of Kristina Nilsson, a mother who leaves a poverty- stricken Sweden with her family in the 1850s and sets out on a long, dangerous journey, hoping to find a better life for herself and her children in America. The film is based on Vilhelm Moberg’s much- loved suite of novels The Emigrants, and the story is now being told on film for the first time from Kristina’s perspective.

All films at CEFF are presented in their original language with English subtitles.
