Poly Parents: Woman at War

POLY PARENTS: We believe that mums and dads shouldn't have to miss out on great cinema, which is why we are now offering special daytime screenings just for them on the first Tuesday of the month. Bring your under 3 for free and we'll create a friendly, half-lit and low sound atmosphere to keep them calm while you enjoy the film with a complimentary tea or coffee.

Dir. Benedikt Erlingsson | Iceland, France, Ukraine 2018 | 100 min | 12A | Subtitled

Benedikt Erlingsson follows up his 2013 hit Of Horses and Men with this warm-hearted and utterly unique look at an Icelandic eco-warrior juggling environmental action and foster motherhood.

Halla (the formidable Halldóra Geirharõsdóttir) leads a quiet, routine existence. But her upbeat exterior hides a secret double life as a committed environmental activist, waging a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry to protect the stunning highland landscape that is under threat. As she takes down drones, explodes pylons, and fires crossbows, she receives unexpected news - her dreams of becoming a mother may be fulfilled sooner than she thinks. What will come first - her eco crusade, or the future of a daughter she has yet to meet?

Soundtracked by a great Icelandic oompah band and a Ukrainian vocal trio (played quirkily by musicians on screen), Woman at War is a real treat: playful, touching, and funny. We think its mix of gentle satire, environmental activism and off-the-wall humour will really resonate.

Tickets: £7.75 / £6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)

Please note the screening on Tuesday at 12:30 is the parent & baby screening.
