Aleksei Vakhrushev | 01:45 | 2011 | Russia

A year among the Chukchis, a nomadic Russian tribe living close to the Arctic Circle. Constructed in chapters, the film conveys the harshness of life on the tundra, and the beauty of this environment, through the eyes of the old chief Vukvukai. A tribute to a threatened culture, The Tundra Book explores a world in which man has learned to live in admirable harmony with nature.
