About the Film
Faced with the climate catastrophe and innumerable crises on the physical, psychological and spiritual levels, humanity has crossed the threshold beyond which global societal collapse is very likely, if not already going on. Acknowledging this predicament, a group of activists, artists, thinkers, and practitioners gathered at the international Immersion in Russia, days before the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. Out of civilization, in the Northern village of Bereznik, they tried to face the challenges of today, and leaving behind illusive hope, to find ways to adapt to the new reality. This film channels their voices.
