Werner Herzog (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Encounters at the End of the World) presents this visually stunning documentary about the people of the small village of Bakhtia in the remote and desolate Siberian wilderness, snowbound for months at a time. Dmitry Vasyukov and his intrepid film crew shot amazing footage under the most difficult of conditions. Strangely inspiring, the film follows three fur trappers through all four seasons of the year, self-reliant men living harmoniously with nature in a way of life virtually untouched by modernity, free from materialism and bureaucracy. With insightful commentary written and narrated by Herzog. Official Web Site
