Russias First Film Financed with Crowd Funding Goes on General Release

The film Atlantis of the Russian North made with funds raised on the Internet has been released in Russia. It is the first project of the kind in Russia.

The documentary was created within a year only on the money raised on the Internet. The beginning film crew managed to collect 300 thousand rubles by means of crowd funding. This money turned to be enough for shooting 50 hours of film material and post-production. The aspiring film director Sofia Gorlenko, the scriptwriter Gleb Kuznetsov, and the cameraman Daniil Salkhov told about it.

      The idea occurred to Gleb Kuznetsov, who worked as a volunteer on reconstructing old wooden churches in Arkhangelsk and Vologda Regions.

      The documentary tells about life in villages of the Russian North, its disappearing old wooden churches, and villagers’ customs and traditions. Among the films characters are young families that came from big cities to live in the northern villages.

      The film illustrates the life of Siberia, which is slowly disappearing, just like Atlantis, carrying away its tenor of life and local customs. As the film preview says: "It is a film on how the Russian North is beaten, created, and rescued”.
