An intimate and uncompromising look at the battle between one truly unique band and a music industry plagued by gender double standards and a culture of conformity, Howl of the Underdogs (2021) is the story of Norwegian rock visionaries Madder Mortem. In particular, it explores the inner life of their enigmatic singer Agnete Kirkevaag, who opens up with ferocious bravery about the effects of the music scene’s image obsession on her self-confidence and the impact of her life-long struggle with an eating disorder on her music.
This screening is sponsored by the Norwegian Embassy in London.
