On 22 July 2011 at 3:30 pm, several bombs explode in the centre of Oslo. About two hours later, on the island of Utøya, the attack is being discussed by groups of young people, who have got together at the Workers’ Youth League’s summer camp. When the first gunshots are fired, no one anticipates that the 650 children and teenagers have been chosen as the terrorist’s next target. Erik Poppe’s compelling and earnest film depicts the massacre through the eyes of the victims. In a single unbroken take, it seeks to recreate the mass murder. The camera closely follows the desperate flight of the teen girl Kaja, whose fate is interspersed with snippets of the real stories of some of those who lived through the 72-minute terror spree on Utøya.



Erik Poppe

Erik Poppe (1960) is one of Norway’s most accomplished film directors. Initially, he worked as a cinematographer, co-creating numerous videos and advertisements. In his first three features – Schpaaa, Hawaii, Oslo and Troubled Waters, forming a loose Oslo trilogy – he explored problematic characters and provided a dramatic kaleidoscope of different fates. Bearing witness to Poppe’s being a versatile director are the drama A Thousand Times Good Night, set in current war zones, and the biographical war film The King’s Choice, focusing on an episode from Norway’s recent history
