Screening of Icelandic film Woman at War (2018) presented in collaboration with Nordic Voices, as part of Tyne Valley Film Festival

Icelandic language with English subtitles

To her friends, Halla (Halldóra Geirharõsdóttir) leads a quiet and routine life. But her happy and upbeat exterior hides a secret double life as a committed environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias "The Woman of the Mountain", she secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry to protect the stunning highland landscape that is under threat.

Funny, moving and utterly unique, Woman at War follows Halla as she juggles the adoption of a beautiful little girl whilst planning her final act of industrial sabotage.

Tyne Valley Film Festival is a community programmed film festival consisting of 30 screenings across 14 unique venues in the Tyne Valley.

Nordic Voices celebrate the many things which draw the North East and the Nordic countries together. Their main event is Sankta Lucia, a Swedish festival of light that they have organised in Hexham Abbey for the last two years.
