Nordic Film Series wraps season with tale of knife fighters

April 5, 2017

Härmä FilmThe 2016-17 season for the Nordic Film Series at Finlandia University’s Finnish American Heritage Center concludes this month with showings of the 2012 fictional drama Härmä. The showings will be at 2 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 13 in the FAHC’s Martha Wiljanen Community Hall.

Härmä tells the story of a young Finnish man who is the leader of a gang of troublemakers. When he discovers that his father is veering from tradition and leaving his estate to his younger brother, rather than him – the oldest son – a battle ensues.

The movie, in Finnish with English subtitles, is just over two hours long and contains several scenes of subject matter unsuitable for children.

The screenings are open to the public; donations are appreciated. For further information, call (906) 487-7347.
