All roads lead to Khatystyr

­Khatastyr is a village hidden away in one of the harshest regions of Russia – Yakutia. The film explores how tough life is for people in this part of the country. Locals here rely heavily on animals to survive the freezing temperatures of the Taiga. These provide not only food and warmth, but also a welcome distraction from the cold. This story shows how enthusiasts brave Southern Yakutia’s vast snowy expanse to gather together for Khatystyr’s reindeer races.
