what's the film about?


RUNTIME: 100 Minutes



Cannes Critic’s Week Grand Jury Nominee

Halla, a woman in her 50s, has had enough of the big corporates ruining the beautiful landscape of Iceland’s highlands. She begins a one-woman campaign to take them down. Living a double life as a warm and friendly choir director in town, Halla has a secret side hobby of taking down heavy industry power lines with her bow and arrow. 

As she learns information about upcoming Chinese investment in Iceland, potentially expanding infrastructure eyesores, Halla turns eco-friendly freedom fighter just as she receives the outcome of her application to adopt a child from Ukraine. Can the “Woman of the Mountain” have it all? 

Including a glorious musical chorus of Icelandic folk instrumentalists and Ukrainian singers that break the fourth wall in barnstorming fashion, Benedikt Erlingsson’s sophomore film is a heartfelt, hilarious and strikingly unique musical tale of the power of passion regardless of age. 

“There’s no other way to say it than to say it: Woman at War is the most entertaining film released in 2019.” – Film threat

Many older Australians face social isolation. This program is designed as more than just a film screening. We encourage presenters to make an event centred around the film screening, including morning/afternoon tea for guests, and other opportunities aimed at making new friends and coming together as a community.
