Blitz – Out Of Control

blitz_160Out of Control is a historic documentary where we meet the youth engaged at Blitz, one of the oldest autonomic youth houses in Europe. A house filled with punk, political engagement and waffles. When the Municipality of Oslo tries to sell the house, the youth flex their muscles, build barricades, promise protest and demonstrate outside the town hall. They do not negotiate with a bureaucracy they distrust. A bad reputation is meant to scare off politicians and potential buyers. “If we’d been nice, we wouldn’t have kept the house”.
