A Brillant and unique poetical insight
This is the first film written and directed by a Nenet artist in collaboration with a Finish Film director. It doesn't tell, it makes you feel how the Nenets, who are reindeer herdsmen in Siberia, relate to their territory. It also renders the suffering deriving from Russian occupation and forced assimilation. None of this is rhetorical but shown through very graphic black and white photography and narrated through 7 Nenets songs. Slow and moving. A rare masterpiece !
