Becoming Santa

USA/English (97 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Becoming Santa is the story of one man entering the culture and character of Santa Claus for a single season. We follow Jack Sanderson, as he bleaches his hair and goes to Santa School - trying to do everything that Santa is asked to do. He works as a sidewalk Santa, does home visits, rides the Polar Express Train and a is the star attraction at a local parade.

Along the way, Jack collects children's wishes, learns about the benefits of belief, discovers the history and origin of Santas around the world, and meets all of the extraordinarily ‘ordinary’ people who keep the spirit of Santa alive. Funny & heartwarming, this enormously crowd-pleasing documentary will make you believe in good ol’ Kris Kringle all over again.
