[De uskyldige], directed by Eskil Vogt, Denmark / Finland / France / Norway / Sweden / UK 2021, 117'
- A small Norwegian town. Midnattssol, the season of white nights and endless polar days, is about to begin. Children from the surrounding area are having carefree fun, looking for holiday adventures.
- This is how a story for children could begin, but Oscar nominee Eskil Vogt (The Worst Person in the World) has directed a film whose premiere at Cannes left viewers in a cold sweat and unable to take their eyes off the screen. The suspenseful, original and disturbing film left the critics in awe and was even referred to by some as a Scandinavian Stranger Things.
- Winner of the European Film Award, the Audience Award at the Göteborg Film Festival and several other honours around the world.
- Little Ida moves with her mother and sister to a new place and quickly meets other children from the neighbourhood. Together they spend their carefree summer days, discovering fascinating and mysterious places. As they continue playing, Ida begins to understand that a unique and dangerous bond is forming between her and her new friends.
