I Am Santa Claus

Tommy Avallone | Documentary | 89min | USA 2014 | OV | German Premiere

This documentary follows an entire year in the lives of four real bearded professional Santa Clauses and one notable rookie to discover what the year is like for a man who perpetually looks like Jolly Saint Nick. In the process, they are shown for who they actually are: flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of the ‘Red Suit’. This Film poses a question about a ubiquitous holiday figure that few parents ever ask themselves:
“Whose lap is my child sitting on?”
