Gegen den Strom (Benedikt Erlingsson)

She may be unremarkable looking, but forty-something Halla is a shrewd environmental activist, who aims to single-handedly prevent economic interests from destroying the Earth, or at least her little corner of it. She doesn’t shy from anything, not even sabotage, for her guerrilla activities. When she cuts off the electricity to the new aluminium factory and the project's investors threaten to jump ship, the government gets very nervous. But then in the middle of her fight, Halla gets very unexpected news. (Festival information, Nordic Film Days Luebeck 2018)
