V Yarange gorit ogon (The Flame of the Arctic) is a rather interesting animated feature about an old mythological tale from the Yakutat Eskimo clan of the Russian far east.
It starts out with the mother and puppy trying to wake up her twin children (one boy, one girl, go figure ^_^) to help out around the place. While mother goes hunting, the children end up teasing each other and playing with their dog. All that is about to change when their mother is kidnapped by the Ice Mother, an evil goddess of winter storms. Do the children cower back and wait for mom to get home? Of course not! They are on a mission to save mother, with the help of a sun god, Northern light warriors and some animal friends.
"Flame of the Arctic" is a beautifully made Russian cartoon based on the obscure mythology of the natives of Siberia. Worth a look indeed.
