A JOURNEY TO THE SOURCE OF THE LENA (Russia, 2010, 45 min.)

Selection from Matsalu Nature Film Festival, Estonia and shown as part of the Rivers Program

Program introduced by Tiit Mesila, Festival Director, Matsalu Nature Film Festival. 

The Lena is the greatest river in Russia. At its center, the Lena is 19 miles wide, while its lower delta has 150 branches. Nevertheless, this giant is like any other river in that it begins as a small trickle on the northern slopes of the Baikal Range in southern Siberia. The Lena’s upper section boasts a unique natural landscape, which has been strictly protected from human intervention over the past 30 years. Here is the kingdom of the brown bear and here are ancient Siberian pine groves. The filmmakers lived in the area for several months while making the film. In Russian with English subtitles. Directed by Vasiliy  Sarana. Produced by Riho Västrik. Edited by Liina Trishkina.

Discussion with Tiit Mesila, Festival Director, Matsalu Nature Film Festival and filmmakers Riho Västrik and Liina Trishkina follows the screenings.

Thanks to The Trust for Mutual Understanding for their support of this program.



Shown with OLD MAN AND THE MOOSE and THE RETURN OF THE MUSK OX.
