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.
