The World Cinema Series will host a Zoom discussion illuminating the theme ‘A Delicate Balance: Global Communities and the Natural World’ by analyzing the message and impact the 2018 film, “Woman at War,” on April 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Set in Iceland, the film focuses on Halla, a 50-year old environmental activist determined to halt the construction of a new aluminum smelter near Reykjavik by destroying power lines and thwarting negotiations between the government of Iceland and a corporation and community eager to see the contracts awarded. Yet, it is her personal, ethical crisis that brings this drama, based on actual events, to a stirring conclusion.
The discussion of the film will be led by Catherine Duckett, associate dean in the School of Science; Nancy Mezey, dean of the Honors School; and Maiya Furgason, instructor in the Department of Management and Leadership.
The film is available for streaming on a number of platforms including Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, Google Play Movies and TV, and iTunes.
