Utøya - July 22

Body

On 22 July 2011, Norway was rocked by two sudden and brutal acts of terrorism - first, a car bomb was detonated in the government quarter of Oslo, and then a gunman attacked a youth summer camp on the island of Utøya, claiming 77 lives. Erik Poppe's unflinching film is an immersive account of the events on the island that day.

A painful story told impressively in one continuous camera shot, it focuses on 19-year-old Kaja (Andrea Berntzen) as she seeks out her sister Emilie amid the chaos. While the subject matter makes for challenging viewing, Poppe's film pays tribute to the courage of these young people, and presents an essential alternative to Paul Greengrass' English-language version of events recently released on Netflix.
