Directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg and starring Aksel Hennie, the film exposes the shocking truth behind the birth of the Norwegian oil industry. Hennie plays Petter, a blue collar deep-sea diver, who, along with his brother Knut, are part of the team attempting to lay the country’s first deep-sea pipelines. When tragedy strikes on the first test dive, Petter must take on the authorities single-handedly in order to discover the truth behind what happened.



“Pioneer is just such a suspenseful picture, and a real achievement for Skjoldbjærg, to be able to take a true story and create something so cinematic of it, following formula and sticking to the conventionalities of the genre and yet remaining faithful to the original story at hand” – Stefan Pape, Hey U Guys
