Beata Gårdeler SE/ 2015/ 1h 50 min/ Drama / 15 years
A small Swedish community which seems idyllic on the surface. But when 15-year-old Jennifer claims to have been raped by a schoolmate, everything changes. The rumour rapidly spreads throughout the community. And more and more people are convinced that Jennifer is lying. This is the beginning of a stirred up lynch chase in which an entire community turns against a young girl and her family.
A brutal collective where evidence and decisions of court mean nothing and where grown up people lay down their own rules and laws. Nothing is going too far. The only thing that matters is sticking with the flock.
“Flocken” (Flocking) won the Crystal Bear for the Berlin Film Festival’s Generation 14plus section, which focuses on films for older teens.
