Seitsemän laulua tundralta / Seven Songs From the Tundra

Seven Songs From the Tundra features seven multi-faceted stories on the life of the Nenets, a nomad community in northern Russia. Made through the joint effort of the community and written by native Anastasia Lapsui in the Nenet language, it provides a beautifully detailed picture of how the people in this region, plagued by extreme cold, harassment and the pressure to assimilate, struggled to live and survive during the Soviet times.
