The self-described ‘Vincent Van Gogh of rap’, Swedish hip hop artist Silvana Imam is a force of nature who smashed into the male-dominated industry and painted rainbow colours all over Sweden. This vital, empowering documentary follows the eloquent and outspoken Silvana with unparalleled access, incorporating concert footage as well as childhood home movies. Central to the film is Silvana’s first meeting with pop star Beatrice Eli and their remarkable emergence as a lesbian power couple who pack out stadiums with their politically charged music. A potent reminder of the power of music to start revolutions.
