Woman at War

Set in Iceland, this jet-black comedy is about an eco-warrior on a mission: to help save the planet and also adopt a child. To her friends, Halla leads a quiet and routine life, but her happy and upbeat exterior hides a secret double life as a committed environmental activist. Known to others as ‘The Mountain Woman’, she wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry to protect the stunning highland landscape that is under threat. Just as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that will change everything. She will be forced to choose between her environmental crusade and the chance of fulfilling her dream of becoming a mother. Funny, moving and utterly unique, ‘Woman at War’ follows Halla as she juggles the adoption of a little girl whilst planning her final act of industrial sabotage. “This quirky Icelandic-language dramedy about an unassuming choir conductor from Reykjavik turned notorious eco-terrorist has a prodigious go-for-broke central performance from Halldora Geirharosdottir.” The Times “timely satire that touches upon parochial and global issues with rare wit, intelligence and nuance.” Radio Times “Alongside considerable frivolity, Woman at War packs a genuine emotional punch, while showing what some people are willing to sacrifice for the good of us all.” The List 12A: contains infrequent moderate injury detail
