Northern Travelogues

by Kira Jääskeläinen, 58 min, filmed in Russia

XXXIII PFF Best Scientific Doc 2019

In 1917, Finnish explorer Sakari Pälsi travelled to Northeastern Siberia carrying a cinematograph and 13,000 feet of film with him. The journey produced a unique documentary film and a travelogue. A hundred years later director Kira Jääskeläinen returns to the Bering Strait in Pälsi’s footsteps. Combining old and new film footage, Pälsi’s notes and the stories of the local indigenous peoples, the film highlights the story of the Chukchi and Siberian Eskimos from bygone days till today.
