Rome 2014 – Cinema d'Oggi
The shamans of the two native peoples of the North, the Khanty and the Forest Nenets, have no intention of signing on to the new ideology of the Soviet Union. To reconcile two such very different cultures, six artists leave for Siberia to reach the forests around the Ob River. Led by “Polina the Revolutionary”, they soon find themselves between a rock and a hard place: old-timers with lingering Tsarist sympathies, all decidedly unmoved by the artists’ revolutionary ardor.
A charming and nostalgic look at Russian history from the director of SILENT SOULS. A vibrant new voice of Russian cinema.
