Vyacheslav TELNOV (St. Petersburg Documentary Film Studio)
This film is a 30-minute contemplation of the hard work of fishermen living in rigorous northern world. It does not have musical score and it almost has no dialogue.
DIRECTOR’S NOTE The space of life sometimes comes down to very simple things. Imagine: white sky, white snow, skyline, wind, a human figure tucking into ice. The man makes a hole in the ice. For him, it is a possibility to live. Seeming simplicity of life is everything that we are capable of seeing. Perhaps we can sometimes also detect the direction of the flow.
