Special Order – Not a Regularly Stocked Item – Sho
Add To Cart
Filmmaker Anastasia Lapsui, a Nenet who hails from the Russian tundra, has combined Nenet legends with her personal experiences to portray the life of her people under the communist regime. Unfolding in seven separate stories or "songs," this exquisite film offers an impressionist view of an ancient culture caught between their traditions and legends and the threat of the modern world and its politics. Behind the film's mythic allusions is a story of resistance...a story about people fighting to preserve their identity.
