Nominated for Emerging UK Filmmaker Award
As a teenager, Karen sought refuge at Blitz, a squatters’ stronghold in Oslo. In the mid-1990s, a fierce conflict broke out in Norway between various extremist youth groups, with antifascists and neo-Nazis battling it out. It was then that Karen made a choice that has haunted her ever since. The Betrayal gradually wends its way towards Karen’s secret and her emotional journey into her rebellious teenage years. This is the filmmaker’s personal journey to confront her past, and a story about both left and right wing extremism.
