THE RIOT

The Riot tells the story of the struggle against oppression in the mining town of Sulitjelma, called Sulis, at the beginning of the 20th century. Konrad and the suppressed workers stand together in the revolt against the mining company and its ruthless leader Wennstrøm. The film deals with actual incidents at Norway’s second largest workplace, where the mining company had all the power and where the workers struggled under inhuman conditions in the dangerous and dark mines. This was the Wild West of the Nordic countries. Oppression, slave labor and the brutality of capitalism ended with a revolt that created the Nordic model and the modern society we see today in Scandinavia.

THE RIOT is a Norwegian historical action drama about the origins of the labour movement and workers’ rights in the mining city Sulis in the early 20th century. It is an important part of history that has never been told on screen before. The epic film is directed by Nils Gaup (The Last King, 2016) and produced by Storyline NOR. The film stars Swedish actors Otto Fahlgren (Beartown, 2020) and Simon J. Berger (Margrete – Queen of the North, 2021; Exit, 2021) in the leading roles.
