Woman at War (2019)

The Regal’s Foreign Film series presents the Icelandic film Woman at War.

To her friends, Halla (Halldóra Geirharõsdóttir) 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.

As she begins making her plans Halla 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.

This film is in Icelandic, Spanish and Ukrainian with English subtitles.
