1h 25min · Documentary, Adventure · 11 August 2013
Way up in the far northwest of the Russian Tundra lies the picturesque village of Krasnoschchelye. Its inhabitants, indigenous Sami people, live from the ancient tradition of reindeer husbandry. Once a year the reindeer herders are celebrated for their labors in a festival that features a reindeer sleigh race where they can display their skills. But the Kolkhoz is insolvent and it looks like the festival might have to be cancelled - a symbol of the Sami tradition and culture in Russia, currently threatened with extinction. 30 years old Sasha, a member of the newly found Sami parliament in Russia fights for the festival and the survival of her village.
