Vukvukai, a Chukchi reindeer herder from a remote peninsula along the Bering Sea region of eastern Russia in the Arctic Circle, lives by the traditions of his ancient, nomadic culture—following practices that have allowed them to survive in one of the harshest climate zones on earth. Centering on Vukvukai and his community, this gorgeous and often lighthearted documentary by Yupik filmmaker Aleksei Vakhrushev follows the community from the snow-bleached winters to the budding spring, offering a glimpse into a land, a culture, and a people that few have been able to witness.
