Woman at War
WINNER: CANNES CRITICS’ WEEK AWARD, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2018
50 year-old Halla lives in the beautiful Icelandic Highlands. The warm-hearted choir leader also leads a secret life as a passionate hardcore environmental activist. Armed with her bow and arrow, deftly wielded, Halla sabotages the industry that she feels threatens her beloved landscape. As she embarks on her boldest sabotage plan yet, the stakes are raised when she finds out that she is on the verge of realising a long-cherished dream to adopt a child. Erlingsson takes a wildly daring approach, bringing musical, comedic and social justice elements together in a visually lush film. It is sure to be one the year’s most memorable.
Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite. – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
