Fresno Filmworks Presents "Woman at War"

About This Event

Filmworks presents the absurdist, feel-good drama “Woman at War,” a critical favorite at the Cannes Film Festival and Iceland’s selection for a 2019 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. The sophomore feature from filmmaker Benedikt Erlingsson tells the story of Halla, who leads a double life: her innocuous neighborhood persona, and her secret saboteur alias, “The Woman of the Mountain,” as she’s been dubbed by the local press. Halla causes trouble for a cause, blurring the line between passionate environmentalism and eco-terrorism. Her environmental crusade becomes complicated with the news that her long-awaited adoption application has finally been approved. Halla is prepared to abandon her extreme activism and do what she must to prepare for the adoption of a Ukrainian child, but only after she delivers one last crippling blow to Iceland’s aluminum industry.
