We will gather at MIF for an evening of Uralic tunes, Siberian stories and wisdom, fumes of spices and nutrition.
Screening: Before the Snow (27’ 25) by Christian Vagt.
The film portrays three Indigenous storytellers from Western Siberia who in different ways share their stories, experiences, and messages. They make it possible for an outsider’s public to explore their culture and region through stories of the dead and of ghosts, a fairy-tale, and warnings to respect the customs. The film was produced on a minimal budget but with ample support of the storytellers themselves. Stories were chosen by them on the request to tell something about the way Indigenous people deal with ghosts and the dead.
Concert by multi-instrumentalist G.Popov aka OMFO who will bring sounds from the Ural mountain ranges
Dinner composed of various dishes across Eurasia by Cooking Disorders & Comrades (Kristiina Koskentola & co).
