Film Screening: SUMÉ – Mumisitsinerup Nipaa/SUMÉ: The Sound of a Revolution

August 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm UTC+0

Free

Director: Inuk Silis Høegh (Inuit)
(2014, documentary, 74 min., Greenland/Denmark/Norway)
In Kalaallisut and Danish with English subtitles)

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 prior to Sumé didn’t have 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.
