Woman at War (2017)
The people have spoken, and this year's audience award goes to WOMAN AT WAR – an intriguing mixture of feel-good comedy, political satire and peculiar musical elements, set against the gorgeously photographed Icelandic landscape.

Heavy industry ravages the Icelandic nature, so a sole woman has decided to take matters into her own hands and begins taking down electric pylons with bow and arrow. The government does their best to demonize and hunt down the mysterious eco-terrorist, as she is jeopardizing an international business deal. The press names her “The Mountain Woman”. Little do they – or the people around her – know of the fact that it is Halla, a friendly 49-year-old choir conductor who is the vigilante.

WOMAN AT WAR is Iceland’s submission to the 2019 Academy Awards and a completely unorthodox drama. Congratulations!
