Woman at War

Our next film, on Tuesday 13 October at 17:30 and 20:00, is Woman at War, directed by Benedikt Erlingsson. This gentle Icelandic drama, from 2019, concerns itself with Halla, a mild-mannered choral teacher who leads a double life as an eco-warrior, venturing out in her spare time to bring down electricity pylons. Then she receives a letter from an adoption agency, and her life turns upside down. A strong story with plenty of lighter moments and wonderful vistas of the Icelandic landscape.
