Rapper Nils Rune Utsi – AKA SlinCraze – dreams of making it big with his music. He has talent, ambition, a couple of gigs and a handful of dedicated fans. Unfortunately, he also lives in a godforsaken village in the Arctic highlands of Norway, and raps in a language only 20,000 people can understand. ARCTIC SUPERSTAR is a story about growing up in a small place and trying to make it in the big world. Vice Magazine has described it as one of the best music documentaries of 2016.
