The 25th of August there will be shown Documentary "Yenisei" from the "Big Water" cycle. The film is created with the grant support of the Russian Geographical Society.
The authors of the picture took a boat from the upper Yenisei to the mouth, far beyond the Arctic Circle, to learn the legend of the Taymyr dragon. On the way to the north, to the Nenets, storing ancient legends, the film crew visited places that justify comparing the Yenisei with the "master of Siberia".
The viewers will get to know about the traditions of fisheries, the legend of the Arctic, the northernmost locality of continental Russia – the Dickson Island, as well as the history of the construction of the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station. The team will visit the difficult stretch of the river - Kazachinsky rapids. Film screening will begin at 20:00. Free admission.
