Dir Eskil Vogt | 2021 | Norway / Sweden / Denmark / Finland / France / UK | 117 mins | Norwegian with English subtitles

In a pleasant residential estate near Oslo, nine-year-old Ida is tasked with looking after her sister Anna. As they play outside, Ida meets Ben, who can make objects fly through the air without touching them, while Anna strikes up a friendship with Aisha, who is telepathic. The sisters learn to harness these powers themselves, but as the long summer days drag on, what began as innocent party pieces become forces of evil in a chilling film that blurs the lines between horror and social drama.

Rakel Lenora Fløttum, Alva Brynsmo Ramstad, Sam Ashraf, Mina Yasmin Bremseth Asheim

“This icily brilliant supernatural tale … greased my palms with anxiety and has some of the best child acting I have ever seen.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Disturbing, intelligent and held together by a young cast of jaw-droppingly talented actors … drenched in a spirit of respect for children and their autonomy that is far too rare.” – Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film

“A sophisticated and scary film that shines with authentic anger and unexpected empathy for its creepy kids.” – Kristy Puchko, Mashable

Programme Details
The venue is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? The programme run time includes an allowance for introductions. While we will endeavour to accommodate latecomers, this may not always be possible. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse entry, without a refund, to anyone arriving after the advertised start time.

Please note the pedestrian entrance to Princes Quay is either via the Quayside entrance (next to Nandos) or via the footpath from Waterhouse Lane / Bonus Arena. Both entrances off Carr Lane are closed after 6pm. The car park entrance remains unaffected.
