“FASCINATING! One of the best music docs in 2016” - Vice
The Story:
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 become 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 maybe even 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.
