Berwick Film Society: Woman at War

From the same director/writer as Of Horses and Men, here is a playful take on a serious global and topical issue that has captivated audiences world-wide with its wit and warmth.

We’re trekking across the verdant highlands of Iceland for a rebellious adventure in the company of amiable environmental warrior Halla. A Joan of Arc-style activist, she sets off on a solo campaign against the heavy industrial companies threatening her beloved landscape. Jogging along with bow and arrow in her rucksack, she dodges surveillance helicopters, becoming stealthily determined to outwit her pursuers. Meanwhile the government escalates its tactics to discredit Halla and halt her endeavours – before she creates even more havoc.

“…Amid the jet-black comedy, which takes as its catastrophic subject matter the despoliation of planet Earth… [Woman at War] transcends national and cultural boundaries, making this a truly universal treat” Mark Kermode, The Observer
