When Molly moves into her new apartment after a tragic accident, a strange noise from upstairs begins to unnerve her. The disturbing knocking sounds like a call for help or perhaps a message in morse code. As its intensity grows, she confronts her neighbours but it becomes clear that no one can hear what she is hearing. As everyone starts to question Molly, including Molly herself, she is thrust into an unsettling quest to uncover the truth in a world where truth and reality appears to be just beyond her reach.

Film director Frida Kempff is a Swedish director and scriptwriter with a bachelor’s degree from Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. Her films have been screened and awarded at the main festivals, including Cannes, Sundance, Telluride, IDFA, London IFF and Gothenburg, and in 2010 she was the first Sweden since 1957 to win an award with a short film at the main competition at Cannes with «Bathing Micky». «Knocking» is Kempff’s debut narrative feature film.

Director Frida Kempff will be joining the audience in a video call and answering your questions after the screening.
