Odyssey Film Club: Woman at War

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Benedikt Erlingsson • 2019 • Iceland • Eco-Comedy • 100 mins • Cert 12A

The Odyssey Film Club takes us on a journey to Iceland for a hilarious, surprising and poignant story about a choir mistress who moonlights as a guerrilla climate change activist.

Behind her middle-aged quiet routine, Halla leads a secret life as a passionate environmental activist. From petty vandalism to industrial sabotage, her fight to save the planet is challenged by her desire to adopt a child.

A whimsical dark comedy that reflects on the fate of planet earth and delivers a truly global message with warmth, humour and hope.

Join us after the film for a round table discussion and chance to try Icelandic snacks.
