Woman at War Sunshine Coast Film Society Iceland 2018, 100 min., action/drama Director: Benedikt Erlingsson Icelandic with English subtitles The SCFS season opens with a stunning Icelandic comedy/drama/thriller (which is it?) about an eco-angry woman, twin, accomplished choir leader, challenged potential new mother (which is she?).

Mad Hot Ballroom Sunshine Coast Film Society U.S. 2005, 105 min., doc/music Director: Marilyn Agrelo Join us for some pre-Christmas magic: a charming and inspiring documentary that profiles several elementary classes from New York’s inner-city schools as they compete in a city-wide ballroom dancing competition. As much about life in general as about dancing, a central theme is the growth and maturation shown by the eleven-year-olds from their first awkward steps in rumba, swing, and tango classes through to confidence and…
