Fermanagh Film Club presents THE COUNTY
Eminent Iceland filmmaker Grímur Hákonarson follows up his acclaimed, award-winning crowd-pleaser RAMS with THE COUNTY, another deadpan comedy of agricultural strife and community uprising.
Set in a small Icelandic community, the film tells the story of Inga (Arndís Hrönn Egilsdóttir), a middle-aged dairy farmer who, after a tragic loss, takes it upon herself to rebel against the corrupt, all powerful local Cooperative exploiting her and the local community. Though deeply in debt and facing great resistance, Inga must use her resourcefulness and cunning to break free of the Co-op’s grasp and finally live life on her own terms.
A deliciously playful comedy filled with feisty female energy, THE COUNTY is a rousing yarn about the power of the underdog, and the importance of fighting against large-scale injustice.
Film fans aged 18 to 25 years can avail of a reduced ticket, priced £5, please contact the box office.
