What Will People Say (Hva vil folk si)
The price of teenage rebellion is dramatic in writer/director Iram Haq’s autobiographical second feature. Maria Mozhdah is striking as Nisha, a teenager living in Oslo with her strict Pakistani family. Polite at home but a typical teen with her friends, Nisha’s double life collapses when she is caught bringing a boy home by her father. She’s sent to Pakistan, where she is forced to try and adapt to a country she has little association with. A thoughtful and provocative film that weaves an emotional and memorable story.
