Jul Northwest

  • 1977 ----- color ----- 27 min ----- 16mm
  • During the Christmas season, ethnic identification and a need for community rekindle interest in tradition. The film invites you to participate in a Scandinavian-American Christmas to gain insight into the cultural pluralism of America. Narrated by a cross-section of Scandinavian-Americans in the Pacific Northwest, the film offers warm, personal glimpses of old-country activities in transition from baking the Christmas flatbread in the early fall through ritual fortune-telling on New Year's Eve. (Produced by the Department of Scandinavian Languages and Literature, University of Washington)
