About the films


On a remote coast of the Siberian Arctic in a wind-battered hut, a lonely man waits to witness an ancient gathering. But warming seas and rising temperatures bring an unexpected change, and he soon finds himself overwhelmed.

Requiem for a Whale

On a stormy night, a whale’s body washed ashore. While the documentation of this rare event is shown, the voices of a few witnesses are heard, attempting to express the immense encounter with nature.

Hive no. 10

Jonathan returns from kindergarten and announces that he wants to raise bees. The request surprises his mother and evokes painful memories of her own childhood in Russia. Determined to deal with past traumas, she decides to accede to his request.
