From here to hell and back

Anne-Britt Harsem: Neighbors

UTØYA: New book about the traumas of the neighbors. It is assumed that the volunteer women and men at Utøya transported more than 250 terrified young people to safety. At the same time, the police and the emergency services failed.

JULY 22: In my opinion, the police could have panicked

UTØYA: I transported 24 battered, shock-injured young people to safety on the mainland from Utøya. Several times I led the boat out to this hell on earth. Where were the police?

The trauma story

Aslaug Holm, Sigve Endresen: Generation Utøya

JULY 22ND: Utøya as a hotbed for budding party affiliation: This generation still cannot be gagged.

Should filmmakers fail to comment on their contemporaries?

Marius Holst, Paul Greengrass, Erik Poppe: The murders in Congo, 22 July, Utøya 22. July

: Norwegian feature films and drama series often draw material from reality.

Proximity to American conventionalism

Carl Javér / Paul Greengrass: Reconstructing Utøya / 22 July

: Of the two new films about the Utøya massacre, it is Reconstructing Utøya which, through the honest stories of four survivors, in all its simplicity allows us to sense both the extent of the tragedy and a way forward for those involved.

Soothing staging

Carl Javér: Reconstructing Utøya. Work in progress.

: Reconstructing Utøya is close, brave and warm – if you can only watch one film about Utøya, it is highly recommended to wait for this one. 

They are careless

Erik Poppe: Utøya 22. juli

: Poppe's feature film paves the way for care and a new focus on the survivors of the Utøya tragedy.
