The Book of the Sea

Kniga morya

Everyday life of the traditional fishermen in the Bering Strait can be described with three simple words: fight for survival. The landscape’s breathtaking beauty is intertwined with human struggle, in a documentary that takes a closer look on the members of an isolated indigenous community in the extremity of the Arctic Circle. Man’s battle for a better life is enriched with animated myths of the Inuit culture.
