Seven years ago on 22 July, more than 500 teenagers at a left-wing political summer camp on a small island outside Oslo, Norway, were targeted by armed right-wing extremist Anders Breivik; an attack that ultimately left 69 people, most of them children, dead. A moving, though harrowing real-time recreation of this horrific event from the victims’ perspectives, Utøya premiered at the 2018 Berlin Film Festival and drew praise from survivors as a painful but necessary examination of the dangers of far-right extremism and domestic terrorism within Europe.

An earnest and heartfelt tribute to the courage of the young victims and a compelling depiction of the horror and surrealist of sudden, inexplicable violence.
