On March 12, our regular screening program 'Subtitled Tuesday' (with English subtitles included) will present the Icelandic eco-feminist parody 'Woman at War' directed by Benedikt Erlingsson. Screening starts at 9 p. m.
A quirky action comedy about a fifty-year-old choir teacher Halla known in the media only as “the Mountain Woman”, who secretly wages a war on the local aluminum industry. But the passionate environmental mission to protect the pristine Icelandic Highlands will become a mission impossible when she gets a letter from the adoption center granting her application. However, it’s not all gloom and doom – a small jazz band following Halla everywhere she goes reminds us that saving our planet is a hopeful project. The film won the SACD Award at Cannes, LUX Film Prize for 2018 and the Best Audience Award at the 16th Zagreb Film Festival.
