Just as in winter, this is a new world that opens up to us. It’s not just the family that has chosen the forest, but a whole community lives there in isolation, including children and young people who are creating a future for themselves.
Summer, a period of plant explosion and animal profusion, is the perfect time of 'return' - for animals, humans, and all the beings that matter to those who stayed behind and who inhabited the forest during winter.
It’s the time of a massive exodus from cities to the forest. This film tells the story of this return - also that of Natassja and her daughter - and of a different world that is taking shape in the midst of summer in the Kamchatka forest.
THE PRESS in France:
"And a river tuns through it"...such could be the title of this magnificent documentary about a clan of reindeer herders of the Even tribe. Daria, the chief, lives with her family by a stream in Kamchatka, in the far east of Russia, in the heart of the forest." (Etienne Séguier - La Vie, 13 Nov. 2020)
