Woman at War wins the 2018 Nordic Council Film Prize
In the speech Erlingsson made last night he conveyed a message to politicians from the main character woman in the film, Halla, who goes to war to protect Icelandic nature.
"She would say to you: You are important people, because you have taken up the challenge to fight global warming. You are courageous people, because you can say to your voters, vote for me and I will make sure that you will get less of everything. Good luck with that."
Woman at War has received numerous international awards since its release.
