NOTES

Title from title frames

In this darkly comic gem, it's Christmas Eve in northern Finland, and an archeological dig has just unearthed Santa Claus. But this Santa isn't one you want coming to town. When local children begin disappearing, Pietari and his father capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the corporation sponsoring the dig. Winner of the Variety Piazza Grande Award at the **Locarno International Film Festival**. Winner of Best Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography, and Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film in Silver - Special Mention at the **Sitges - Catalonian International Film Festival**. *"RARE EXPORTS is a rather brilliant lump of coal for your stocking hung by the fireside with care." - Roger Ebert, **Chicago Sun-Times*** *"Santa shows his dark side in this wildly idiosyncratic horror flick from Finnish writer-director Jalmari Helander." - Andrea Gronvall, **Chicago Reader***
