Reel Movie Mondays: Woman At War

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm 5402 - 47 Street

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, Rated PG Iceland/France/Ukraine | 101 min. | Icelandic w/English subtitles, Mongrel Media About the Film: As a follow-up to his 2013 film Of Horses and Men, director Benedikt Erlingsson delivers Iceland’s nominee submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards: Woman at War, a timely film that speaks to social issues with wit and warmth. Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir in a bravura performance) is a choirmaster who loves her job. And, she’s just learned she’s been approved to adopt a child from a war-torn area in Ukraine, a longtime dream of hers. The only hitch is that Halla is also a terrorist — an eco-terrorist to be exact. The proliferation of heavy industry, urged on by unscrupulous politicians, has been ruining Iceland’s rugged landscape and she’s taken action. Dubbed the Mountain Woman, Halla soon becomes the scourge of the aluminum industry. She is determined to see things through… but she can’t help wondering, would it be more fulfilling to save hypothetical future lives or one actual life: the daughter she has yet to meet and may never if she’s apprehended. Erlingsson’s second feature drills deep into the inevitable dilemmas plaguing almost everyone committed to the greater good. And the political satire here is precise and rich. Tickets are on sale now! Purchase your tickets online at www.reddeermuseum.com, stop by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery in person, or give us a call at 403.309.8405. Tickets are $8 each for valid MAG Members, and $10 each for Non-Members, up until 4:30 pm on film nights. Tickets can be purchased at the door on film night for $10 each starting at 6 pm (cash only; no member rate at the door), pending availability.
