22 JULY by Paul Greengrass.
The story about... The survivors. The political leadership. The lawyers involved.
FILM 19 in the #tiff18 #venezia75
Based on the real life incident of July 22. 2011, it tells the true story of the aftermath of Norway's biggest trauma since World War 2... where 69 students perished in the mass shooting is a summer camp on Utøya island, and 8 in the bombing of a Government building in Oslo at the hands of an armed, right-wing extremist. "Refusing to make Breivik spectacular, the film pays tribute to process, how Norway gave him precisely what he was entitled to so as not to give him what he wanted – scale, martyrdom, glamour." @guardian
Paul Greengrass, The Academy Award nominee (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, UNITED 93), "Should be required viewing for all complacent politicians who refuse to work toward an adequate response to gun violence or to acknowledge the dangers of allowing race-based hatred to go unchecked." @hollywoodreporter
