The Tundra Book
NITV  |  September 16, 2013

It's noon and -37C on Chukotka peninsula. A blistering wind slices across the Tundra. In the magnificent landscape of Russia's Arctic Circle, just across the Bering Strait from Alaska, 72-year-old patriarch Vukvukai leads his Indigenous Chukchi family in caring for their herd of 14,000 reindeer. Subtly directed by Aleksei Vakrushev, an award-winning Inuk filmmaker from Chukotka, The Tundra Book provides a rare and stunning glimpse into a world still intertwined with the oldest rhythms of life.
