Northern Travelogues will be screened at the National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw.
In 1917 Finnish explorer Sakari Pälsi travelled to Northeastern Siberia carrying a cinematograph and 13,000 feet of film with him. The journey produced a unique documentary film and a travelogue.
In the documentary Northern Travelogues director Kira Jääskeläinen returns a hundred years later to the Bering Strait in Pälsi's footsteps. Combining old and new film footage, Pälsi's notes and the stories of the local indigenous peoples, the film highlights the story of the Chukchi and Siberian Eskimos.
The screening will be held on Friday November 25th, at 20:00
