Woman at War | Friday 14 February | 6:30pm | Rated: PG | $10 | Fundraiser
Halla is a fifty-year-old independent Icelandic woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist.
Woman at War, the newest offering from Icelandic auteur Benedikt Erlingsson (Of Horses and Men), is a quirky, heroic tale set in our world of imminent threat. A serious fairy tale told with a smile.
WOMAN AT WAR is the opening film for our new weekly FRIDAY screenings of films that seek to be life-affirming and fulfilling. Every screening will also have all of the proceeds donated to a relevant local Whanganui charity or organisation. For this screening the proceeds are going to Whanganui Women's Network as a La Fiesta event.
