She is Halla, a beloved, single choir director in her early fifties, living a secret double-life as a green activist when no one is looking. Cutting power lines to sabotage a local aluminum plant in her spare time, Halla mostly operates alone in her heroic yet elaborate quests. In the film’s breathtaking opening sequence, she runs from helicopters and drones, hides in natural cracks of the earth and finds refuge in the home of a local greenhouse farmer, who lends her a runaway vehicle and becomes her unofficial accomplice. But along with saving the planet, Halla is also in the process of attempting to adopt a child, a lengthy procedure brought to an unexpected head when a Ukrainian orphan finds herself in dire need of a home.
The idea behind the anarchist café is that we want to enable a nice gathering and a vivid exchange of people who are interested in anarchism and anti-authoritarian thinking. An appreciative and considerate interaction is important for us! There will be beverages and food. It would be nice if you also bring something (vegan or dumpster-vegetarian please!) We are looking forward to seeing you! 🙂
