In the frigid waters off of Russia’s Bering Strait, Inuit and Chukchi hunters still seek out the giant sea mammals that sustained their people since time immemorial. The contemporary story of elders Alexander and Alexei blends seamlessly with that of “the woman who gave birth to a whale” and other ancient myths, told here in vivid animation.
A spectacular and visually impressive cinematic story about the vitality of the ancient Arctic culture.
