Sumé – Mumisitsinerup Nipaa (The Sound of a Revolution)

Greenland/Denmark, 2014, 73′

Director: Inuk Silis Høegh (Inuk)

Producer: Emile Hertling Peronard (Inuk)

Languages: Greenlandic, Danish; subt. English

The rock band Sumé was crucial for the creation of a Greenlandic identity in the cultural awakening of the 1970s. Their rock, sang in Greenlandic, was a spirit-raising protest against the 250-year colonisation by Denmark. The story of the band is also a powerful description of the change that took place in Greenland in general.
