The Volcano People

This film looks amazing it's set in the Kamchatka Peninsula in Siberia which I have written about before but what I didn't know is that it's home to the moat active volcanoes in the world and therefore incredibly beautiful. The indigenous who live there are called the Eveny people, they are of Mongolian descent and are practised in the ancient art of throat singing which is obviously great. Like the rest of the former Soviet Union the area was totally shaken up by its break up, however being so vast and far away we tend to forget about Siberia especially as it is as much a part of Asia as Europe. The film is about them and their relationship to nature particularly volcanoes (obviously). From this trailer it seems that they believe in living in tune with nature and not going against its grain. Which is something I've been thinking about a lot recently, I think we'd all probably be a lot happier if we did it more; I heard a good interview with Antony Hegarty and Bjork in which she was saying that she feels happy and energised in Iceland because it still has links to nature unlike cities like New York. I'm getting off topic now, but this is definitely a post for another time. In the meantime here's the trailer

This is my favourite quote
disaster happens but opportunity often lies at its wake.
It's a very beautiful way of looking at the world and I'm really excited about seeing the film.
