SUMÉ - the Sound of Revolution

Greenland, Denmark, Norway, 2014г., 73 min

Director

Inuk Silis Høegh

From 1973 to 1976 the Greenlandic rock band Sumé released three albums and changed the history of Greenland. The group’s political songs were the first to be recorded in the Greenlandic language – a language that used to have no words for “revolution” or “oppression”. After 250 years of Danish colonization Sumé set in motion a revival of Greenlandic culture and identity, and paved the way for a Greenlandic home rule government.
