Few moviegoing phenomena are as viscerally pleasure-inducing as the surprise of discovery. That’s what the Nordic Lights Film Festival delivers. The weeklong series beginning Friday at St. Anthony Main is an eye-opening tour of contemporary Scandinavian filmmaking, some area debuts, some briefly glimpsed on local festival and art-house screens, and all a far cry from the austere dramas of old. If you think of the region as a bland haven of carbon-neutral kindergartens, chunky snowflake sweaters and plywood-tasting crispbreads, brace yourself for a kick in the zeitgeist.
