13.Cinematik will begin with a film from Toronto Film Festival and will be closed by a mysterious drama from Cannes
24. August 2018
A Norwegian co-production drama What will people say (Hva vil folk si) directed and written by Iram Haq had a very special first night at the Toronto Film Festival and so happens to be the opening film of the 13. IFF Cinematik. This is a story of a 16-year old Nisha who comes from a Pakistani family and enjoys her liberty. Everything, however, changes as her tradition-loving family starts to interfere. Nisha’s family tries to radically and absurdly protect her from the modern influence of the free Western Europe and therefore, causes a significant generation conflict. What will people say belongs to one of the most expressive Norwegian shots so far.
