Werner Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams) co-directed and narrates this fascinating visit to the remote and almost completely self-sufficient Siberian outpost of Bakhtia, a trappers’ village of 300 people isolated within limitless forests, its way of life sometimes brutally arduous, yet always independent. 90 minutes. English and subtitles.
“”Celebrates the hard-won freedoms that living in the Taiga offers those who are willing to confront its challenges. There are few places on the planet where the strictures of society don’t apply, and the trade-off for fending off bears and minus-50-degree weather is the opportunity to live a pure, solitary life”-NPR.
Direction: Dmitry Vasyukov & Werner Herzog
