All Tickets £6

 Norwegian with English Subtitles

Director: Erik Poppe

Starring: Andrea Berntzen, Brede Fristad

Erik Poppe’s single-take, real time recreation of the horrific 2011 Norway attacks on the island of Utøya is a gut-wrenching account of an event that left 69 people dead. It centres on 18-year-old Kaja (Andrea Berntzen) as she and her friends, shocked by news of the Oslo bombing and terrified as shots begin to ring out, embark on a minute-by-minute quest to survive. Poppe worked closely with several survivors on the film, giving voice to their experiences over that of the (largely unseen) gunman; resulting in a viscerally compelling depiction of the horror and intensely surreal quality of sudden, inexplicable violence.
