Silvana - väck mig när ni vaknat

11 yrs 95 minutes 2017 7.1

The artist Silvana Imam has in a few years gone from being an underground rap artist to an acclaimed icon, known for her sharp texts and her commitment to xenophobia. In the documentary about her life, we get to follow behind the public image and see an artist who tries to find her place as a role model and her own expectations. Jan-Eje Ferling at Filmeye went to the press show without knowing who Silvana Imam was and got "a fresh hit in his face". He writes: “The documentary from the directors Mika Gustafson, Olivia Kastebring and Christina Tsiobanelis are very thorough and well done. Their portrait of the artist and the person Silvana Imam is an experience and must touch everyone who sees it. Even if you do not share her ideas, you must be impressed by her lyrics and stage presence. And the courage to be yourself”. The documentary was awarded a Gudlbagge for best documentary 2018.
