Turns out, Santa hates you
Pop Up Screens are creating a cinema in the snow, which you enter via their very own magical wardrobe. So far, so festive. And now you can discover the secret behind Santa Claus in this Finnish horror-fantasy film by Jalmari Helander. A scientist discovers a sacred grave on Korvatunturi mountain, housing a suspiciously unjolly occupant. Soon, the local people begin to suffer disturbances, including the deaths of their reindeer and disappearances of their children. It begins to emerge that the occupant is the source of the original Santa Claus myth, but his motives have been somehow…misunderstood. Best available seating. Film certificates apply.
"Beautifully shot and always fascinating."
