Nordic Film Series to present animated Finnish film "Seven Brothers" Jan. 9

HANCOCK -- An animated movie based on one of the greatest Finnish novels ever written begins the 2014 portion of the Nordic Film Series slate TODAY, Thursday, Jan. 9.

Seven Brothers, the only novel by famed Finnish author Aleksis Kivi, is the basis of a short, animated film of the same name. Beginning the Nordic Film Series for 2014 with this film is appropriate since this year is considered the centennial anniversary of animation in Finland. This showing is also the kickoff event for Heikinpäivä 2014. Watch for more information about this mid-winter festival, coming soon to Hancock.

The film will be shown at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the Wiljanen Community Hall of Finlandia University’s Finnish American Heritage Center. The screenings are free and open to the public; donations are appreciated.
