On July 22, 2011, 32-year-old right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik set off a bomb in the centre of Oslo, killing eight people. Then he went to the island of Utøya, where a youth camp for members of Labour Youth was in full swing. There, he shot and killed 69 people. Director Kari Anne Moe follows four young people with political ambitions in the run-up to the school elections held shortly before the official Norwegian elections, which serve as a barometer for the national political mood. Sana is a young Muslim woman and member of the Socialist Youth League, Haakon is a member of the Youth Conservatives, Henrik belongs to the populist, right-wing Progressive Party Youth, and Johanne is a member of the governing Labour Party. Bravehearts follows the four of them during meetings, training courses, debates and in interviews, and paints a picture of an assertive generation with an optimistic attitude towards the future. Suddenly, the film takes a completely different turn when July 22 puts an end to this open-mindedness.
Kari Anne Moe, born 1976, studied documentary directing at the Film and TV Academy in Oslo, and at the documentary department at Volda University College. In 2005 she made the documentary film The Tambourine Man. She has been working with Sant & Usant since 2007 as a director and producer. Bravehearts is her first feature-length film.
