The European Parliament Liaison Office in Washington DC, in cooperation with the European-American Cultural Foundation, has the pleasure to invite you for the screening of LUX Film Prize 2018 winner, “Woman at War.”“Woman at War” is a 2018 Icelandic-French-Ukrainian environmental-themed and feminist comedy-drama film by Benedikt Erlingsson. Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias “The Woman of the Mountain,” Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry. As Halla’s actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminium smelter in the mountains. But, right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything.
