Ener­getic Ivanna lives with five chil­dren in a tiny sled car. She belongs to the nomadic Nenets, who breed rein­deer in the Arctic tundra. It is a rough but also free life. How­ev­er, she no longer has her own ani­mals and will soon move to the city to work. The father of her chil­dren already lives in the city, drinks too much, she can’t count on him. The city holds many dan­gers and it is uncer­tain whether modern life will be better. But Ivanna is strong - she also seems to have cap­ti­vat­ed the camera.  

On May 13, this film will be screened simul­ta­ne­ous­ly at NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF DESIGN as part of our #Junction_Ahmedabad, fol­lowed by a shared discussion.
