Plot synopsis
For Kelundzig hunters the very life starts in September-October, when in their boats tightly packed with supplies they sail to the upper Samarga to their winter huts where they live three-four months hunting fur. The inhabitants of the “Land of Udehe” lived just the same hundred years ago, when Vladimir Arsenyevwasin his expeditionhere and Aleksandr Litvinov shot his ethnographic film"Forest people". They still survive in a narrowing circle of timber industry. “All Udegei people are animists. They see life in everything. There is no death for them”, - wrote ethnographer Vladimir Arsenyev in his “Land of Udehe”.
