Hull Independent Cinema presents: I, Olga
Tomás Weinreb, Petr Kazda | 2016 | Czech Republic | 18 | 105 mins | Czech language
Olga is a complex young woman desperate to break free from her unfeeling family and social conventions. With her tomboyish looks she drags herself, chain-smoking, from one job to another until she appears to find her niche as a truck driver. I, Olga posits the question; what makes a murderer?
Raised in Prague, Olga Hepnarová was a timid by nature and troubled child with no friends, that was frequently bullied by her classmates. Living in a strict family environment, feeling alone and unable to cope with life’s issues, she gradually alienated herself. Unable to fit in, she felt a raging hatred growing inside her towards the indifference of a society that left her destroyed by people. Rejected by everyone and marginalised, she meticulously plotted against society, declaring her intention for revenge against her family and the world…
Nominated for Best Film at Art Film Festival. Nominated for Best First Feature Award at Berlin International Film Festival. Winner of awards at festivals including Sofia, Minsk and Vilnius.
I, Olga is rated 18. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
“It’s a cool, compelling and profoundly unsettling piece of film-making.” Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
“Atmospheric and engrossing, this meticulous recreation of time and place acquires an unsettling contemporary relevance through its analysis of the mindset of a mass murderer with a death wish.” David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
