Presented in partnership with the Anchorage Museum NORTH X NORTH event.

Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias “The Woman of the Mountain,” Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry, but right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.

North x North celebrates connection, creativity, imagination and innovation across the Circumpolar North and convenes people worldwide for a discussion about possible futures.

North x North 2020 begins with a 5-day creative conference focusing on language, visuals and ideas for creatively and critically thinking about the future, and ends with the Fest—film, food, music, dance and family-friendly activities.

Together, we create a shared narrative, shared futures and convey a pivotal and relevant narrative of the North for the world.

Fest + Boreal Film Festival: April 17-19
