You heard it here first- the Nordic Heritage Museum will present the fourth annual Nordic Lights Film Festival next month, the weekend of January 18-20. The festival will include documentaries, short & feature length films from Iceland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The festival kicks off with a reception at SIFF at 6pm on Friday, followed by a film called Beyond starring Noomi Rapace from The girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Both Saturday and Sunday festivities begin at 10:00am, and have some wonderful films of note lined up, such as Silence, a drama about the 2nd World War, and how Finland was among one of the only nations to take home their casualties to be buried in their homeland, and Teddy Bear, a Drama from Denmark about a body builder from Copenhagen who has never known love. After his father finds a companion in Thailand, he goes on a quest to find a woman of his own. Tickets can be purchased ahead of time for single day passes ($10), or entire weekend passes ($55).
