Woman At War

Woman at War is an Icelandic film about Halla, an eco-activist and choir director, and her battle with Iceland’s pervasive aluminum industry. Praised by Variety, The Guardian, and the Cannes Film Festival, it is an intelligent, feel-good film that poses a deft critique of globalization and ecological degradation. From the picturesque cinematography to the flawless sound design, Woman at War speaks to the festival’s larger mission as it cultivates discussions on urgent social issues while fostering an appreciation for film artistry.  (Written by Andrew Berg, ‘20)
