Event date

 

Soup & Cinema is back! Join us for our monthly lunch program where you will enjoy a Nordic film and hot soup at the Museum. We kick off the new season with the Icelandic film Woman at War/ Kona fer í stríð by director Benedikt Erlingsson. 

Halla is a choirmaster who loves her job and has just learned that she has been approved to adopt a child from a war-torn area in Ukraine, a long-time dream of hers. The only hitch is that Halla is also a terrorist — an eco-terrorist to be exact. The proliferation of heavy industry, urged on by unscrupulous politicians, has ruined Iceland's rugged landscape and she is taking action. Dubbed the Mountain Woman, Halla soon becomes the scourge of the aluminum industry. She is determined to see things through… but can't help wondering, would it be more fulfilling to save hypothetical future lives or one actual life: the daughter she has yet to meet and may never if she's apprehended.

We will serve soup, bread, coffee and cookies.

Cost: $15 for Members; $20 general admission (price include soup, bread and cookies and we recommend pre-ordering your tickets)
