Spring 2019: Kona fer í stríð (Woman at War)


Originally screened: April 24, 2019

Director: Benedikt Erlingsson
Country: Iceland
Runtime: 101 minutes

Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is doing what no one else dares to — piece by piece, she's striking back against corporate industry-led projects encroaching upon the Icelandic landscape. But her vigilantism is doing her few favours — her actions, like any oppositional activism, endanger her job (as a choirmaster), as well as her application to adopt a Ukranian refugee child. Faced with this tilted dilemma, Halla weighs the price of keeping to one's own convictions.
