Arctic Superstar

Part of Being A Man

Meet Nils Rune Utsi, also known as Slincraze, the only rapper from the Sami community, an indigenous people that inhabit the Nordic region.

In documentary Arctic Superstar, director Simen Braathen follows Slincraze for almost four years, going from his nearly abandoned town in the arctic Tundra of Norway where he lives with mother, to touring in Murmansk, New York, Tromso and Karasjok, all to fulfil his dream of making a living from his music and maybe even becoming world famous. Despite the fact that less than 20,000 people speak his endangered language.

The screening is followed by a conversation with Slincraze and director Simen Braathen.
