Finnish film: The Unknown Soldier

The Finlandia Foundation Northland Chapter hosts an authorized showing of "The Unknown Soldier" on Finland's Independence Day.

The Unknown Soldier is a 2017 Finnish war drama and the third adaption of the 1954 Finnish classic novel of the same name by Väinö Linna, a book considered part of national legacy. The previous two film adaptations were released in 1955 and 1985. Each year on its Independence Day the Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) broadcasts the 1955 version.

The three-hour World War II film follows a machine gun company of the Finnish Army during the Continuation War between Finland and the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1944.

The event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted. Refreshments will be served.
