The film festival “By Moscow time” was opened with the film “The White Yagel” based on the novel of the Yamal writer Anna Nerkagi. The event is taking place in the French city of Toulouse and is dedicated to Russian culture and folk traditions. Filmmakers from many cities of Russia are participating in it together with the representatives of Yamal.
As we should remind, the film by Vladimir Tumayev was included to the ten best films about indigenous peoples of the world. The story of the film takes place in tundra. Circumstances make the main character to choose between the youthful love, the girl, who leaves him, and traditions of ancestors, which cannot be broken. Nenets people of Yamal played in crowd scenes and secondary roles, actors from Kalmykia and Yakutia played main roles.
