DocuWest Medium Length Pairings: Piblokto & No Elephant in The Room
Programmer’s Note: These are two stunning observational films. Each brings us into worlds not seen. Each allow us to meditate on reality.
On the coast of the Arctic Ocean of Siberia live a people cut off from the world. Their life revolves around hunting walruses and whales and protecting villages from bears. The film is a meditative reflection on death.
