Closing Night Film!

SIFF Cinema Egyptian
Noir City brings down the curtain for 2017's festival with an audacious thriller filmed on the streets of Berlin in a single epic take. Spanish immigrant Victoria (Laia Costa, in an extraordinary performance) is only looking for a good time when she falls in with four young Germans in the wee hours. Little does she suspect she is about to be dragged into a drug-fueled bank robbery orchestrated by an unforgiving gangster. Armed only with a digital camera and a twelve-page script, director Schipper, camera operator Sturla Brandth Grøvlen, and a driven cast give the audience a night they will never forget.
