Slide 15: Death in Santaland (2007)
The town of North Pole, Alaska––an actual municipality established in 1953 to become a tourist destination––had its halls decked with scandal in April 2003 when a group of 13-year-olds were arrested for plotting the murder of their teachers and fellow students. In this BBC documentary, filmmaker Jon Ronson travels to the North Pole to find out how such evil could exist in community where the adults still dress as elves.
