Storyline

A successful rock band from Greenland? Yes, it's not a lie. In 1973, the Greenlandic Sumé released a debut album, which record time made it to all the households on the icy island. But Sumé's success was not just due to their catchy beat rock, but also to the band's ability to put words to the zeitgeist, where Greenlandic culture was slowly fading away. Written by anonymous

Crash course in the modern history of Greenland
27 June 2015 | by peefynSee all my reviews

While this is a documentary about a band, the band itself is not the interesting part of it. By seeing the context the band grew out of, the feelings of the band members and the reactions of its fans, you get a glimpse of the post-colonial development of Greenland, and you get an idea as to what direction they are heading. Instead of making the documentary about the old sealhunter culture of Greenland, or the modern day problems they face, the documentary delves into the cultural expressions of the dissatisfied youth, and how those who spoke up touched the entire country.

This is also interesting as a Greenlandic film in general. There aren't too many of this, but from watching this alone, you'd think there'd be a long tradition of filmmaking in the country.

The filmmakers managed to dig up quite a bit of archival footage, some of it really fun to see if you've been to Nuuk. And interesting either way.
