Hvordan lager man en film om noe som er så grusomt at det unnviker forklaring og representasjon? De siste tre årene har regissør Carl Javér og produsent Fredrik Lange jobbet med dokumentaren Reconstructing Utøya. Fire overlevende fra angrepet har i filmen rekonstruert opplevelsene sine, i forsøket på å finne en måte de kan forholde seg til det som skjedde på.
I tillegg til å vise klipp fra filmen og snakke om prosessen, vil regissøren og produsenten sammen med den norske co-produsenten John Arvid Berger fortelle om ideen bak prosjektet og selve innspillingen.
