HANCOCK -- The White Ribbon is the featured Nordic film this Thursday, March 10, at the Finlandia University Finnish American Heritage Center, Hancock. The film will be shown twice on Thursday at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Released in 2009, The White Ribbon is a mysterious story about a series of untoward events in a rural village in pre-World War I Germany.

The black and white film is structured around a string of misfortunes that befall the citizens of Eichwald, Austria, an agricultural community where half the population works for the Baron and where the stern Protestant pastor wields a strong influence, especially on the children.

The film is in German with English subtitles. There is no charge to attend, but donations are accepted.
