Produced by the National Film School of Denmark as the graduation project of Milad Alami, the half-length film Nothing Can Touch Me (2011) has been controversial since its premiere.  Portraying a situation related to school and high school shootings, the film has received several complaints from the Danish education sector. Its director spoke out: “I am not interested in violence. I am interested in the main character’s struggle to understand why this violence happens”.

Nothing Can Touch Me (Milad Alami, 2011)

A morning like any other, a young armed man appears at Katrine’s high school and unleashes hell. Katrine escapes after seeing his face. Together with a group of classmates, they decide to hunt down the killer. But Katrine realizes she has more in common with the killer than with the other students.

Milad Alami has directed fiction movies, musical videos and commercials. Nothing Can Touch Me has been screened at several festivals and received the ‘Best Student Short Film’ at the Cleveland International Film Festival.

Nothing Can Touch Me is one of the films selected for the Official Section of the 5th Edition of Valencia’s International Half-length Film Festival ‘La Cabina’.
