RUSSIA, France - 2019 - 52 MINUTES
Somewhere deep in a great country, along a great river surrounded by forests and marshes, is a small Siberian village. Seven months a year, this village, Yartsevo, becomes inaccessible: you can only get there by slowly going up the river by boat. Time seems to have stopped there. I was born in Yartsevo, and I returned there recently, with my camera, and a question that has accompanied me since my departure: what were we looking for when we embarked to leave the village where we were born?
