Oficial Selection: ‘Ida takes charge’

Serielizados Fest premieres in Spain the new Norwegian series ‘Ida takes charge’ about the paranoia of a university student who imagines an imminent attack on her faculty.

Ida moves to Oslo to study psychology. Her greatest fear is to suffer a terrorist attack at her own university, like the ones she’s seen on the news. All hell breaks loose when she meets Aksel, a lone wolf labeled as incel (involuntary celibate), and a regular on strange internet forums. Ida begins to think he is a potential genocidal. The more she gets to know him, the more fearful she becomes. How far is she willing to go to stop him?

This story is an adaptation of a very popular book of the same name in Norway, which was the literary debut of twenty-year-old Kersti Halvorsen. In this brilliant adaptation, one of the most remarkable things is the mesmerizing performance of Elli Müller Osborne, as the protagonist.

Screening of the first three episodes.
Original version (Norwegian) with Catalan and English subtitles.
Run time: 90 minutes.
