Directed by Saga Becker and Christofer Nilsson, Fuckgirls is an experimental, visual hybrid film combining documentary reflection and fiction. The film follows three young girls whose everyday lives are filled with violence and oppression. Through vulnerable dialogue, the girls share their sorrows and fears of losing control. They get strength from their sisterly connection and vow to take control of their lives by using the extreme measures of their enemies. A poetic drama between dream and reality.
