Arctic Superstar

Director: Simen Braathen
72 minutes, Norway 2016, Norwegian with English subtitles

The indigenous Samí rapper, Nils Rune Utsi - aka SlinCraze, lives with his mother in Máze, a nearly abandoned town in the Arctic Highlands of Norway. Nils dreams of being able to make a living making music, and maybe even becoming world famous like his hero Eminem.

Playing to sparsely attended shows, in remote locations, on makeshift stages, and usually for free, Niles uses his music to deal with the trauma of being bullied as a child and, perhaps more importantly, prove to himself that he's not a nobody.

The only problem is that less than 20,000 people in the world understand the endangered language he raps in.
