The five Nordic Embassies in the U.S., WIFT International and WIFV Washington are presenting a digital screening series of fiercely intelligent and radiant Nordic cinema!

Nordic Women in Film is five weeks of artistic ambition. Five weeks of cultural exchange. Five weeks of fearless film screenings and conversations.

The Nordic countries have a proud history of firmly embracing the complexities of gender equality. With this common voice of urgency, we invite you to a space where bold, creative and distinctive female voices are examined, amplified and celebrated.


March 2-4: And Breathe Normally (dir. Ísold Uggadóttir, Iceland, 2018)

Two women’s lives will intersect while trapped in circumstances unforeseen. Between a struggling Icelandic mother and an asylum seeker from Guinea-Bissau, a delicate bond will form as both strategize to get their lives back on track.
