Lithuania/Finland 2014. Dir: Marius Ivaškevičius. 100 min. DCP

VANCOUVER PREMIERE | Lithuanian writer-director Marius Ivaškevičius graduated from shorts to feature with this affecting, Yuletide-themed family drama, nominated for four Lithuanian Film Awards including Best Picture. “A trip to Lapland leads to immense changes in the life of a single mother and her seven-year-old son when they meet a local actor. Love, hope, and efforts to save the life of the little boy will dramatically affect the lives of the two grown-ups. Santa is a story about human relations and the often painful challenges that life poses. In order to overcome these challenges, sometimes one must believe in the miracle of fairy tales” (EU Film Days Tokyo). In Lithuanian and Finnish with English subtitles.

Please note: Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Santa will unfortunately no longer screen. We apologies for any inconvenience. In its place, Finland's Kaisa's Enchanted Forest will screen on Sunday, November 27 at 4:00pm
