Hevn is a combination of psychological drama and revenge thriller set against the majestic backdrop of the Norwegian fjords.

Siren Jørgensen stars as Rebekka in Hevn

Comox Valley Art Gallery’s TIFF Fall Film Series continues at 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30, with Hevn, a gripping combination of psychological drama and revenge thriller set against the majestic backdrop of the Norwegian fjords.

The feature debut from writer-director Kjersti G. Steinsbø, Hevn is a Norwegian production with English subtitles, which stars Siren Jørgensen (Netflix’s Lilyhammer) as Rebekka, a woman out to exact revenge on the man she holds responsible for destroying her sister’s life. While Morten Holand (Frode Winther) has made a picture-perfect life for himself and his family, Rebekka is bent on turning his friends and family against him. However, her actions will have consequences for more people than just Morten, and Rebekka must ultimately decide how far she is willing to go to achieve her goal.
