Watch the teaser for the first Norwegian dance movie, BATTLE

The teaser trailer for the first Norwegian modern dance movie Battle has been released, and it certainly resembles the typical American dance movies!

Battle stars Skam actress Lisa Teige as Amalie, who is forced to move to a tough neighbourhood, but she desperately tries to hold onto her former privileged life. Torn between two worlds, she needs to learn who she is in order to become a true dancer. The movie is a youth film, and aims to deal with such topics as identity, social differences, ambition, and prejudice.

The local release date is some time this autumn, with no international release announced.
