ISÁK (CONCERT) + RAHčAN – 'ELLA’S RIOT' (FILM)
Our Youth Team invites you to a concert with one of Norway’s best live bands after the screening of the film depicting the band’s Sami lead singer on the environmentalist barricades.
Sami synthpop! It could well be the concert of the year when young musician and activist Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen first takes part in a pre-film talk about her, ‘Rahčan – Ella’s Riot’, and then takes the stage with her band, the electropop trio ISÁK. In their native Norway they have become huge with their very own version of joik, the traditional Sami folk song, beautifully combined with urban synth and a magical universe of lyrics. In the film ‘Rahčan – Ella’s Riot’, we follow Ella, who is torn between her strong ties to her home village in Finnmark and her new life in Oslo with her girlfriend and her career with her band ISÁK. But when a mining company threatens Sami land and water, she decides to leave town to save her home. The evening is organised by our Youth Editorial Board and presented in cooperation with the Danish-Norwegian Foundation.The event is organized by the Youth Editorial Group of CPH:DOX and presented in collaboration with Fondet for Dansk-Norsk Samarbejd, which is supported by A.P. Møller Fonden.
