ZIMNIK – short documentary from Siberia

September 25, 2013 § 3 Comments

“Zimnik” – the winter road, only operates during the coldest months of the year, because it is a road of perpetual ice and frost. The word “zimnik“ originates from the Russian word “zima“ meaning “winter“.

Evenkiysky District in the Krasnoyarsk Territory lies along the polar circle in Russia, Siberia. Area takes 767,660 km2 (~1.5 France). It is one of the sparsest inhabited land surfaces of the planet. The majority of the region’s fuel supply reaches the region by the “zimnik“, which vanishes in the summer months.

Average temperature while filming was around -40°C.
