Festival Ruska Bad Movie Night
September 29, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Join Finlandia University students and employees for a showing of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version of “The Day the Earth Froze,” a movie that has lovingly been rated 3.5 out of 10 on the Internet Movie Database. The film follows, rather loosely, the Sampo myth from Kalevala, the Finnish national epic. The film, which is free and open to the public, will be hosted by folklorists Dr. Hilary Virtanen and Dr. Tuomas Hovi who will lead a discussion–or perhaps a support group meeting–related to the film. Refreshments will be provided. This event is sponsored by Finnish & Nordic Studies Program and Student Life.
