KAMCHATKA part 2 - SUMMER WITH THE EVENS
Director(s): Mike MAGIDSON – Writer(s): Mike MAGIDSON, Nastassja MARTIN Contact Print page
Summer is a joyful revival of life. A glorious period of lush vegetation and living outdoors.
For the Evens, summer is also a time of “transmission”…when children and family members from the city join their parents in the forest.
French anthropologist Nastassja and her baby daughter are back in Kamchatka for the warmer days. Daria and her granddaughter Vassilina, whom we met in winter, are our guides through “a different kind of world”, a new nomadic experience.
THE PRESS in France:
"And a river tuns through it"...such could be the title of this magnificent documentary about a clan of reindeer herders of the Even tribe. Daria, the chief, lives with her family by a stream in Kamchatka, in the far east of Russia, in the heart of the forest." (Etienne Séguier - La Vie, 13 Nov. 2020)
