Vera Giuneut, the daughter of a shaman, is a member of the Chukchi tribe of the Far East of Russia. This stand-alone work, filmed in Magadan, is comprised entirely of original video footage and still photographs, including recordings of modern celebrations in which participants perform songs, dances and rituals, and describe ancient tribal traditions; studio clips; natural and urban landscapes of the Kolyma Region; and scenes of the vestiges of the Chukchi and Evens’ population who still follow the traditional nomadic lifestyle.
