MONDAY, AUGUST 19
WOMAN AT WAR
At 8 p.m. the Mermaid Arts Centre will host a screening of Woman at War, which tells the story of Halla, a happy, upbeat music teacher in her forties who leads a quiet, routine life. Unbeknownst to most, she is also ‘The Mountain Woman’: a lone wolf environmental activist who disrupts the operations of an aluminimum plant in the Icelandic highlands. As the authorities intensify their campaign to catch her, she receives life-changing personal news and struggles to reconcile the two sides of her life. Tickets cost €8.50/€7 and are available from the Mermaid.
