Shines a light on the 100-year-old "Operation Santa" Program of the United States Postal Service. Each year, hundreds of thousands of letters to Santa arrive at Post Offices around the U.S. Through Operation Santa, the United States Postal Service makes it possible for the public to safely adopt these letters and make children's dreams come true. The film invites audiences into the magic of this massive endeavor. Traveling the country, much like Santa does on Christmas Eve, it focuses on select "Operation Santa" Centers: some in metropolitan areas like the massive operation in New York and others in small towns where the Post Office is the heart of the community. The film highlights letters where a child is asking for something poignant, something that goes beyond the common wish for a toy. Dear Santa is directed by American doc filmmaker Dana Nachman, director of the films Witch Hunt, Love Hate Love, The Human Experiment, Batkid Begins, and Pick of the Litter previously. IFC will release Nachman's doc Dear Santa in select theaters + on VOD starting December 4th before the holidays. Did you ever write a letter to Santa?
