Woman at War

  • Tuesday 5th November
  • Tickets: €6 Early Bird before 5.30pm on the night

Meet Halla, a music teacher in her forties. She is a happy, upbeat woman who leads a quiet and routine life. But unbeknown to most she is also ‘The Mountain Woman’: a lone wolf environmental activist who disrupts the operations of an aluminium plant in the Icelandic highlands.

As the authorities intensify their campaign to catch her, she receives an update on a long forgotten adoption application - she has been matched with a four-year-old girl in the Ukraine.  Can she reconcile this with her crusade to protect her homeland from big industry or will her efforts destroy her chances of finally becoming a mother?

A funny, moving and utterly unique film.
101 minutes, Iceland, France, Ukraine, 2018, 12A
