Ága - Bulgaria BIFF Oscar® Contender

A slow burning, simple but ultimately involving story of an aging Yakut hunter and his wife as they eke out the last of a fragile livelihood in the frozen arctic vastness of Siberia. They live alone in a windblown yurt, enduring the frozen arctic winter and longing for reconnection with their estranged daughter. This longing sets off a quest to find her at a far-off diamond mine. A film that requires patience but delivers. "Ága" is deliberately reminiscent of Robert Flaherty’s immortal "Nanook of The North" (1922).
