The Whale from Lorino
Wieloryb z Lorino
Chukotka, a place located on the edge of Siberia, where the cold winter lasts ten months. It's a severe land, where only the strongest are able to survive. One of the oldest Siberian tribes live there for centuries. Its tradition, culture and life in harmony with nature, were brutally destroyed by the Soviet regime. Since the USSR collapsed they have been trying to survive, missing the wisdom of their ancestors and hope for the future.
One of the last sources of life and tradition of Chukchi is whale fishing, whose fate is also threatened. For the Chukchi people, the whales are hope to survive the next winter. When the land of Lorino warms up from the sun, the hunting begins.
It is a struggle of two worlds that approach at each meeting the edge of existence.
