evgenia arbugaeva documents vyacheslav korotki, a meteorologist who has spent the past thirty years living alone at a remote arctic outpost on the barents sea, in a century old wooden house that became a meteorological station in 1933, where he was sent by the russian state to measure and log climatic conditions and then transmit the data via radio to moscow. 

notes evgenia, “the world of cities is foreign to him. he doesn’t accept it. i came with the idea of a lonely hermit who ran away from the world because of some heavy drama, but it wasn’t true. he doesn’t get lonely at all. he kind of disappears into tundra, into the snowstorms.”
