    • Synopsis
    • Mirny: an utopia on permafrost, a mining town in the middle of nowhere / Founded to support the construction of one of the most lucrative diamond mines
      worldwide / 40,000 people living deep in Siberia, on the border of one of the biggest holes created by men / a micro-cosmos only reachable by air where
      diamond excavations ended in 2001 / Why and how do people still live here on the abyss?
      The empty mine hole has become the most powerful visual metaphor for the political bareness left by the Soviet system and it is still an image of hope in the
      middle of desolation, as the literary translation of the name means: peaceful.
