Silvana Imam documentary to Doc Lounge!
We are very happy to announce that the brand new and very much awaited SILVANA, a doc about Swedish rapper Silvana Imam will be shown at selected Doc Lounge clubs this summer and early fall. These exclusive pre-views, presented in collaboration with distribution company TriArt Film, will lead up to the film's cinema release on September 15.
With her uncompromising lyrics against all forms of oppression, Swedish rapper Silvana Imam has taken Scandinavia by storm. She uses her razor-sharp tongue to spotlight movements taking place in today's society, embodying the voice of a new generation along the way. This film follows Silvana from underground artist to icon, as she wins several major awards and forms an almost mythical relationship with Swedish pop-artist, Beatrice Eli. However, after just one year in the limelight, it all came to a sudden halt. Silvana crashes under the pressure, fed-up with the the implications of being labeled a “strong female.” She decides to start showing new sides of herself “because there are no super-heroes, just human beings.”
The film the debut documentary from the three swedish directors Mika Gustafson, Olivia Kastebring and Christina Tsiobanelis, produced by Stina Gardell and Anna Weitz (Mantaray Film) and distributed by TriArt Film.
We will announce the Doc Lounge screenings soon - keep your eye out for more details!
