Seventh Grade

Friendship, unity, and joy!

Seventh grade follows Zahra, Nilani and Nora during Year 7, their final year at primary school at Tøyen in Oslo. They are on the cusp between childhood and adolescence, as well as being part of a new generation of children in Norway. On one hand between two cultures, yet also just being girls with ordinary dreams and problems.

Will Nora make it as a footballer? Why won’t their childhood friends hang out with them anymore? Can you be both Norwegian and Muslim? Seventh grade raises many important issues and has received plaudits outside of Norway as well.
