Featuring an environmental activist modestly taking on the world, one electric pylon at a time. Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is a popular 49-year-old choir director, her sun-filled smile warming everyone she meets. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. In the countryside, she’s what the press have nicknamed “Mountain Woman,” an anonymous figure using a potent bow and arrow to bring down power lines in a one-woman crusade against heavy industry. But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything.
“Is there anything rarer than an intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice? Look no further than Woman at War.”
