Woman at War


Director:Benedikt Erlingsson

country:Iceland, France, Ukraine

Run time:101'


Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminium industry before it destroys her homeland. She risks everything she has to protect Iceland’s highlands – and that includes committing major acts of ecoterrorism. Meanwhile, in her normal life, she is the director of a community choir. As if reconciling her two different personas was not hard enough, Halla receives a letter that says an adoption request she made four years ago has finally been
approved: a little girl from Ukraine is waiting
for her. Icelandic director Benedikt Erlingsson
creates an engaging drama punctuated with eccentric comedy.
