CENTRAL SCOTLAND DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL: SCOTTISH PREMIERE

On 22 July 2011, a bomb exploded outside government buildings in central Oslo. The perpetrator was a Norwegian far-right terrorist. After the bombing, he travelled to the island of Utøya, where he murdered 69 people in the course of 72 minutes. Six years after the terrorist attack, four survivors from Utøya and twelve young Norwegians come together to reconstruct the survivors’ memories of what happened. The survivors tell their story for their own sake, but also for ours. For the present, but also for the future.
