On 22nd July, 2011, 69 people were murdered in Norway when a far-right terrorist exploded a bomb in Oslo and then proceeded to shoot children on the island of Utøya where the Labour Party’s youth league was holding it’s summer camp.
Four survivors meet in Northern Norway with twelve young Norwegians to share their experiences and reconstruct their memories.
Reconstructing Utøya shifts between the stunning natural landscapes surrounding them and a Dogville-esque plain black room where they revisit the moments when they realised the gravity of the situation and made their individual plights for survival.
The compassion that emerges between the group is deeply moving, as is the courage in the face of an unfathomable violence.
