Old Man Peter
This film takes us into the world of old man Peter Sengepov, the last surviving Shaman of the Kazym River, who lives alone in the depths of the Siberian taiga. The region of the Khanty people is the basic source of oil recovery in Russia. About 70 percent of all Russian oil is extracted here. The oil companies actively buy huge territories in the North of Siberia. Indigenous people are compelled to leave these places, their own patrimonial territories, and so a modern civilization gradually absorbs an ancient culture.
The 21st century in the remote corners of the Siberian taiga sees a traditional lifestyle of the North of Russia natives still preserved. Oil production, providing the increasing needs of civilization, constantly encompasses the territories of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area. For some, this territory is their birthplace, for others, it is just an oil field.
