What Will People Say

OT: Hva Vil Folk Si

Iram Haq // Norway, Germany, Sweden, 2017
Fiction Feature // FF2017



16-year old Nisha leads a double life in Oslo. For her strict Pakistani parents, she is the perfect daughter. Then, when she goes out with her friends, she is a normal Norwegian teenager. When Nisha’s father catches her with a boy, her life changes drastically: she is sent to relatives in Islamabad and suddenly finds herself in a completely alien culture. Nisha is now in an arbitrary world without freedom and has to watch as her previous life gradually disappears. What Will People Say is a gripping drama about trying to defend against the loss of one’s own identity.


IRAM HAQ (*1976) is a Pakistani-Norwegian actor, screenplay writer and director. Her first feature film I Am Yours (2013) was the Norwegian candidate for the foreign-language Oscar® and won numerous awards.
