POWER PLAY

Power Play is the incredible story of Gro Harlem Bruntland, who in the late 70s works as a young doctor, fighting for self-determined abortion, when she almost by accident, stumbles into politics. As the government implodes around her, Gro learns to play her own games of power, climbing the ranks until she is the last woman standing in the ruins of Labour’s celebrated social democracy, ending up as Norway’s first female Prime Minister in 1981. Based on truth, lies and poor memory.

Winner of the Best Series and Best Music awards at this year’s Cannes Series, POWER PLAY is a political drama series that tells the story of Gro Harlem Brundtland – first ever female Prime Minister of Norway and a true visionary for human-rights and personal freedom. Created by Silje Storstein (Kielergata, 2018), Kristin Grue (The Machinery, 2020) and Johan Fasting (Storm, 2022), the series combines a twisting plot with an eye-opening critique of modern politics which seeks to inspire the audience to take action and change tomorrow.
