Hello World 🇳🇴 2021
June 27 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This screening has limited seating.
In the documentary Hello World (Hei Verden), we follow the lives of Runa (12), Viktor (12), Dina (13) and Joachim (14) through the three years they go to lower secondary school. Told through the eyes of the four young people, the film gives us a window into understanding what it can be like to grow up as a queer (in Norway) today. Joachim gets the opportunity to meet the famous drag queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race and Runa gets a girlfriend. Will life as an open queer become easier over time? Hello world is a fun, engaging and moving upbringing story about not being like everyone else.
