Øst for Paradis - Sal D

From 1973 to 1976, the Greenlandic rock band Sume 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 Sume didn’t have words for “revolution” or “oppression”. After 250 years of Danish colonization, Sume sparked a revival of Greenlandic culture and identity and paved the way for a Greenlandic home rule government.

The film is presented in collaboration with CPH:DOX.
