Open-air cinema: Charter

It's become a tradition! Just like every year, the Institut Suédois is presenting films in the open air just before the end of the summer break. On Saturday: "Charter" by Amanda Kernell.
A mother and her son hold each other

After her divorce, Alice hasn’t seen her children for months and awaits the custody verdict. When her son calls her one night, she reacts immediately and takes her children to the Canaries illegally. The fear of being found out by her ex is mixed with that of losing her kids.

After the magnificent Sami Blood, which won the prize for best director of a first film at the Mostra in Venice in 2016, Amanda Kernell is back with her second feature length film. An intimate, complex and personal portrait of a mother waiting for a decision to be made by a judge, Charter raises a number of issues relating to couples, parenthood, the judgment of others—and sometimes our own.

Director and screenwriter: Amanda Kernell
Production: Nordisk Film Production
With Ane Dahl Torp, Sverrir Gudnason, Tintin Poggats Sarri, Troy Lundkvist
