Synopsis


An epic historical action drama starring Otto Fahlgren (BEARTOWN) and Simon J. Berger (MARGRETE - QUEEN OF THE NORTH), THE RIOT tells the story of the struggle against oppression in the isolated Norwegian mining town of Sulitjelma, called Sulis, at the beginning of the 20th Century. Based on the incredible real events at Norway’s second largest workplace, where the mine workers struggled under inhumane conditions in the dangerous and dark copper mines, this was the Wild West of the Nordic countries. Young miner Konrad Nilsson (Fahlgren) dreams of a better life. Working conditions are brutal for the laborers, and faced with oppression, slave labour and the brutality of capitalism, the mine workers decide to stand together in a revolt against the mining company and its ruthless, powerful leader Wennstrøm (Berger). Directed by Academy award nominated Nils Gaup (THE LAST KING), this important part of Norwegian history has never been told on screen before and tells the origin story of the Norwegian labour movement which planted the seed for workers’ rights in the region.
