Awarded "Best Screenplay" at the Tribeca Film Festival 2011. "Turn Me On, Dammit!" is a story about a group of teenage friends who feel trapped in the Norwegian small town they live in. Alma is experiencing desires she never felt before and is just discovering her own sexuality. Her sexual curiosity makes daydreaming and phone-sex an escape from everyday life. At a party, Artur -- the boy who frequents Alma's dreams -- makes a bold move on her, but everything seems to go wrong. The life Alma wanted to escape from has somehow become even worse. "Turn Me On, Dammit!" consists of beautiful frames and music, with dialogue that is careful, but spot on. Jannicke Systad Jacobsen strikes against all the taboos surrounding young women's sexuality. The world has been waiting, and hopefully, now less people will feel ashamed about something everyone goes through at a certain age.
