Arctic Superstar is a terrific new documentary about the only Sami rapper Nils Rune Utsi, better known
as SlinCraze. He lives with his mother in the tiny hamlet of Masi on the Norwegian arctic tundra. He dreams of making it big but there are only 20,000 people in the world who understand his language. Director Simen Braathen followed SlinCraze for almost four years, going on tour to Murmansk, New York, Tromso, Karasjok, and his hometown. Arctic Superstar is about big dreams coming from a small place. 100 words for snow, no word for ‘yo!’
