Sumé: The Sound of a Revolution

Dir: Inuk Silis Høegh, Denmark/Norway, 2014, 73 mins.

Sun 3 January 2016 // 20:00

Tickets: £5 / £4

The Greenlandic rock band Sumé brought about a revolution over the course of three albums released between 1973 and 1976.

Being the first musicians to sing in their mother-tongue, Greenlandic, and bringing to the language words for ‘revolution’ and ‘oppression’, they made waves with an independence movement in a country which had been colonised by Denmark for 250 years. This is the story of how they made history.

The 4th edition of Nordic Film Festival brings together another diverse mix of features, docs and shorts from the Nordic region. Take your pick from an exciting range of films: from some of our regular themes – human stories, horizons, music, art and design – to political thriller, extreme adventure, and even sci-fi, alongside some fantastic special events. So join us on another cinematic ride to the far north and beyond!
