U – July 22

Utøya 22. juli / 2018 / Norway / 90 min

In 2011, 77 people died in a terrorist attack in Norway. The film begins with the Oslo bombing then it reconstructs the 72 minutes of the Utøya massacre in one long shot. The continuous shot feature is madness, paranoia, emotional sweep, a true shock to the audience. The horror is seen through the eyes of Kaja. When all hell breaks loose, the girl has only two goals: to escape and to find her younger sister.
