Norway / 2019 / 71'
The Norwegian singer and songwriter Aurora Aksnes was discovered at the age of 16, when a video of her singing went viral. Her life changed completely: the somewhat eccentric and reclusive girl who grew up in the Norwegian countryside rapidly became the pop idol Aurora, with fans all over the world. After 200 concerts and halfway through the tour, she seems exhausted and desperate. A portrait of a lightning musical career and a story about creative freedom and the price of fame.
