Portraying the struggles and traditions of the Nenets─people native to the Siberian countryside─this film incorporates mythic ideas drawn from the population's heritage in the telling of seven vignettes concerning their relationship to Communist-era Russian politics. The film's lyrical style offers both a fascinating anthropological study and a stirring testament to the power of cultural identity. Gregory Anaguritsi, Nadeshda Horotelo star. 85 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Nenets and Russian; Subtitles: English; featurette. In Nenets and Russian with English subtitles.
