Woman at War

Director/Country  Benedict Erlingsson  Iceland/France/Ukraine  2018  101 mins  Unrated  Adventure, Comedy, Drama

Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminum industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country. She risks all she has to protect the highlands of Iceland. This is a political thriller, a comedy with surreal overtones, an eco-action film. But foremost it is about the indomitable spirit of one woman who will have to make hard choices.

Highly rated – over 25 film festival awards.
