Shit Happens

Michael Krohn casts a long shadow in Norwegian rock history, having fronted the highly influential Raga Rockers through several decades. Krohn is infamous for his need to control every aspect of his work and has a long history of avoiding the press and sabotaging creative partnerships. This documentary is compiled from two years worth of interviews and sees the subject of the film join the director at the editing table to decide what the audience gets to see and what is cut out of the final film. This is a unique journey into the mind of the greatest poet in Norwegian rock.
