Paul Greengrass 22/7 Netflix Movie For Venice

Ahead of next week’s reveal of the official selection for the Venice Film Festival (29th August – 8th September), Variety reports that Paul Greengrass will premiere his Netflix movie Norway there, which follows the 2011 terrorist attack on Oslo and the island of Utøya.

On 22nd July 2011, Anders Behring Breivik detonated a van in Oslo killing eight people, then shot dead 69 people at a summer camp on the island of Utøya. Based on the book One Of Us by Åsne Seierstad, Norway will not only reconstruct the tragic events of that day, but also show how the nation responded to the attacks.

Meanwhile, NRK is planning a six-part drama about those who were indirectly affected by that day and Erik Poppe’s recent movie U – July 22, which plays out a fictional account of those 72 minutes of horror in real time, has received seven nominations for the 2018 Amanda Awards.
