Winner of the 2015 Berlinale Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for Cinematography - Sturla Brandth Grøvlen

The only screening at MSPIFF of the most talked about film at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival. Shot in one 134-minute whirlwind take (with no digital sleight of hand), Victoria pulls you to the edge of your seat and holds you there in this impressive show of stunt filmmaking.

ONE CITY (Berlin). ONE NIGHT. ONE TAKE. A bank heist gone wrong...

Victoria, on hiatus from responsibilities in Madrid, spends her nights and early mornings clubbing in Berlin. On this particular early morning she meets Sonne and his ruffian friends and joins them for a few drinks. When Victoria gets roped into a simple heist, director Sebastian Schipper puts his largely improvised drama into overdrive, taking us into the electrifying unknown.

"Sebastian Schipper's exhilarating heist thriller is stunt filmmaking of a very high order." - Guy Lodge, Variety
