Cinematique Presents: “Woman at War”

May 20, 2019

Woman at War runs from Monday, June 3 thru Friday, June 7. It screens Monday to Friday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Stein Theatre.

 

Known only by her alias "The Woman of the Mountain," Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. From petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminum smelter. But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, her application to adopt a child was finally accepted. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.

 

 

Woman at War is an environmental drama wrapped in whimsical comedy and tied with a bow of midlife soul-searching.

Woman at War has all the contours of a taut, paranoid thriller, if you can imagine that set within the tidy, brightly-lit environs of Iceland, rather than the shadows of Wall Street or Washington. Ann Hornaday Washington Post
