Inuk Silis Høegh / Greenland, Denmark and Norway / 2014 / 73 mins / Greenlandic and Danish with English subtitles / Documentary

Whoever said music couldn’t change the world? In 1973, Sumé, Greenland’s first ever rock band to sing in their native language was formed. Their poetic and politically charged protest songs gave a voice to the frustrations of the indigenous nation and were a catalyst for Greenland’s eventual independence from Danish colonial rule. This spectacular music documentary combines archive footage, interviews and sweeping landscape shots, against an excellent rock soundtrack, to firmly establish the ever-evolving Greenlandic identity.


This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
