Nordic Lights Film Festival in Seattle

8 Seasons, a Sami Short Film
January lights up next week with films from the Nordic countries at the annual festival held at Seattle Center and sponsored by the Nordic Heritage Museum and the Seattle Film Festival. This year I'll be seeing the always amazing Sami Shorts, on Sunday Jan 18 at noon.

I'm also looking forward to the Norwegian documentary, The Optimists, "a moving, humorous and absorbing documentary film about an extraordinary volleyball team in Hamar town, consisting of ladies between 66 and 98 years of age."

I worked in Hamar once for a few months, living with a wonderful family. I can't wait to see this one.
