Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Saturday, December 21st, at 9:30pm

It’s the eve of Christmas in northern Finland, and an ‘archeological’ dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn’t the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father Rauno, a reindeer hunter by trade, capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation sponsoring the dig. Santa’s elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. This darkly comic gem quickly became required perennial holiday viewing. In Finnish with English subtitles. (2010, R, 85mins)
