Cinetrain: unique cinema journeys

Zima is available online 16-22 February

After 14 prizes and about 200 festivals, Zima is online in its full version for the first time ever, from the 16th to the 22nd of February on Carroll/ Fletcher’s gallery online cinema! If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a good time to do so!


A portrait of a season – a journey through North Russia and Siberia, through the feelings and thoughts of the people who have to cope with one of the world’s harshest climates; a reality where the boundary between life and death is so thin that is sometimes almost non-existent, where civilization constantly both fights and embraces nature and its timeless rules and rites. In these remote places, people, animals and nature itself become elements of a millennial yet unpredictable script, in which physical and mental endurance play an important role as much as chance does, where life and death constantly embrace each other. A reflection on fate, adaptation and the immutable cycles of existence.

Zima was created within the Cinetrain project travelling from Moscow to Lake Baikal on the Trans-Siberian Railway in mid-winter 2013.

The film is available here!
