An ordinary Finnish citizen becomes valuable to his sports-loving country when it is discovered that his blood – super rich in hemoglobin – may be transfused to members of the Finnish National Ski Team, thus improving their chances of success. Arto Halonen directed this film and a tell-all documentary, Sinivalkoinen valhe — both on the subject of doping in Finland.
Note: Films are at 7:30 p.m. on the first date and 2:00 p.m. on the second at the Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Avenue North, Seattle.
