Summary A stunning documentary about the life of indigenous people living in the heart of the Siberian Taiga. Deep in the wilderness, far away from civilization, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia at the river Yenisei. There are only two ways to reach this outpost: by helicopter or boat. There's no telephone, running water or medical aid. The locals, whose daily routines have barely changed over the last centuries, live according to their own values and cultural traditions.
Note Bonus features: Werner Herzog introduction; excerpt from Dmitry Vasyukov's Happy people; Chasing spring in West Siberia documentary; Siberia facts.
