The three friends Gianni, Romain and Théophile travel from France to Umeå in 2014 to take part in and meet the Hardcore scene that they have read and heard a lot about. They want to try to understand and document how this subculture grew and became so big in northern Sweden and Umeå. The result is the documentary UxÅ: A Journey to the Heart of the Umeå Hardcore Scene. The curious and entertaining film alternates personal interviews with archival and background material. UxÅ is a journey through an important part of Umeå’s recent history and it is warming and exciting to take part in it even for those who were not present when it began.
