The Book of the Sea

  • 10C Shared Space, 4th Floor 42 Carden Street Guelph, ON, N1H 3A2 Canada (map)

Aleksei Vakhrushev | RUSSIA

85 min | Full Subtitles

In the frigid waters off of Russia’s Bering Strait, Inuit and Chukchi hunters still seek out the giant sea mammals that sustained their people since time immemorial. Life meets myth as a new generation of hunters sets out to sea to hunt the whales, walruses, and seals that have tied them to these remote shores since the beginning of time.

The contemporary story of elders Alexander and Alexei blends seamlessly with that of “the woman who gave birth to a whale” and other ancient myths, told here in vivid animation, in this ongoing struggle for survival and preservation of a traditional lifestyle in one of the most remote places on earth.

A spectacular and visually impressive cinematic story about the vitality of the ancient Arctic culture.
