Norwegian Kids' Movie: Operation Arctic

Event description from the Norwegian Film Institute's website:

OPERATION ARCTIC is a modern Robinson Crusoe story for children and families set in the the Arctic. By a tragic mistake, Julia (13) and twins Ida and Sindre (8) are left on a desert island. No one knows where to find them. The children are forced to battle brutal weather and hungry polar bears on their own. Their biggest challenge, however, is facing their fears and and overcoming internal struggles in order to get out before it is too late.

The film is recommended for ages 9 and up and runs approximately 1 hour and 31 minutes in length. The film will be shown in the Gallery at Norway House, which will display a photographic portrait exhibit by Randall Hyman called "Sami Dreams." Snacks will be available for purchase in the Kaffebar. If you have questions, parents may contact Norway House at or call 612.767.5974.

This installment of the Norwegian movie series is for families and children on a Saturday afternoon. Though this is a free event, please mark yourself as "going" so we have an idea of how many will be in attendance. Tussen takke!

The Norwegian Movie Night series is made possible by the Norwegian Film Institute in collaboration with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Showings in the Twin Cities are presented as a result of a partnership between the Honorary Norwegian Consulate in Minneapolis, Augsburg University, and Norway House.

Right before the film, from 9:30-11:30, Concordia Language Villages' Language Discovery Programs Norwegian Barnehage offers their monthly Norwegian Immersion Class "Norge Rundt" for ages 4-11 years.
