Sydney Travelling Film Festival Film 15-18 February 2019

WINNER: CANNES CRITICS’ WEEK AWARD, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018; EUROPEAN LUX AWARD 2018, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2018

Halla, a warm-hearted choir leader, lives a seemingly idyllic life in the beautiful Icelandic Highlands, but secretly she's a passionate, hardcore environmental activist. Armed with her bow and arrow, deftly wielded, Halla sabotages the industry that threatens her beloved landscape. As she embarks on her boldest sabotage plan yet, the stakes are raised when she finds out that she is on the verge of realising a long-cherished dream. Director Erlingsson (Of Horses and Men) takes a wildly daring approach, bringing musical, comedic and social justice elements together in a visually lush feature. This gloriously funny film is sure to be one of the year’s most memorable.

Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite. – The Hollywood Reporter
