Everyone needs to be heard.
Synopsis: After suffering a traumatic incident, Molly (Cecilia Milocco) moves into a new apartment to begin her path to recovery, but it’s not long after her arrival that a series of persistent knocks and screams begin to wake her up at night. Molly’s new life begins to unravel as the screams intensify and no one else in the building believes or is willing to help her.
KNOCKING is the feature debut from Frida Kempff, whose credits include the 2010 Cannes Prix du Jury winning short BATHING MICKY, and premiered to great acclaim at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section.
A timely psychological horror thriller built on very real human fears and anxieties, skillfully lensed with claustrophobic precision by Hannes Krantz and given a pulsing score by Martin Dirkov (BORDER).
Theatrical poster designed by Midnight Marauder.
The film stars Çecilia Miloccco, Albin Grenholm, Alexander Salzberger, Krister Kern, Ville Virtanen, Charlotta Åkerblom, and Naida Ragimova. KNOCKING is written by Emma Broström and produced by Erik Andersson for Läsk in collaboration with SVT and the Swedish Film Institute through the initiative Moving Sweden with support from Norrköpings Filmfond. Federico Ambrosini served as executive producer on the film adapted from a novel written by Johan Theorin.
