Paul Greengrass describes who he collaborated with the victims in order to film an accurate movie. He speaks also about the other film on the attacks, Utoya, presented last February at the Berlinale.

22 July: Paul Greengrass tells the true story of the aftermath of Norway’s deadliest terrorist attack. On 22 July 2011, 77 people were killed when a far-right extremist detonated a car bomb in Oslo before carrying out a mass shooting at a leadership camp for teens. 22 July uses the lens of one survivor’s physical and emotional journey to portray the country’s path to healing and reconciliation.
