– BALYKSYT (The Fisherman), a film by Viatcheslav Semionov
An old fisherman lives on the shore of a long-forgotten lake, in the heart of the Siberian forest In Yakutia-Sakha. He avoided people, lived like a hermit, and every day, he praised the spirits for the food offered by nature. One day, as he was picking up his creels, he saw a man whose head extended out of the water. At first, this cut-off head terrified him, but he realized the man was still alive, and decided to rescue him.
– OGO KUJUURDUU TURARA (The child on the lake), in Sakha, an experimental film by Prokopi NOGOVITSYN
In order not to famish and to be able to study, a little boy decides to go fishing on the lake. He asks the spirit of the lake to provide him with fish, but he is starving, so eventually he faints and gets acquainted with his ancestors.
