Utøya 22. juli / Utøya: July 22

On 22 July 2011, more than 500 youths at a political summer camp on an island outside Oslo were attacked by an armed, right-wing extremist. Earlier that day he bombed a Government building in Oslo before making his way to Utøya island. In the film, we meet 18 year old Kaja 12 minutes before the first shot is fired. We then follow her as she tries to survive – minute by minute.
