A letter from Bjørn

Hi,

In 2011 I survived the attack on Utøya island where 69 people participating in the labour youth party’s summer camp lost their lives.The perpetrator was right wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik. His ideology is a result of hate, violence and ignorance. After the attack I have committed myself to battling those who share his ideology, those who believe the racial constructs of a different time. Those who think a culture is static, a race is better and that these ideals should be protected through the means of violence.

The film ‘Rough Cut – Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity’ is my latest endeavour on the quest to do what ever I can to make sure nothing similar to what happened to me and my friends ever has to happen to anyone else. We’re currently lacking the last 12% of our budget to push us across the finish line. Thus we have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds needed.

If you believe our work is valuable, that far right extremism is bad, and that violence is the wrong way to go please help us out through a donation and by sharing my story and this project with your friends and through social media.

Best regards,
Bjørn Ihler
Producer
