Every nation gets the heroes it deserves.
A Patriotric Man is the story of Toivo, whose blood is exceptionally powerful. When the Finnish ski team hears about Toivo, they understand they have found a highly prized secret weapon. His blood can improve any athlete’s performance, fueling the skiers to success. The prospects are fantastic, and in particular Toivo works closely with one of the most talented of the skiers, Aino.
As a part of the Nordic Film Thursdays project, the Scandinavian House in cooperation with Evald Cinema presents A PATRIOTIC MAN (Isänmaallinen mies).
The screening will begin with a very short lecture about the actress Pamela Tola.
