24 Snow is the new documentary film of Egor Makarov, business partner of the Northern Forum. This is his fourth motion picture. This time the film is oriented to a Western viewer and is taking part in international film festivals. One thing that remained the same over the time is its protagonist – a Yakutian horse. Extreme climate of the Arctic Yakutia is an everyday survival challenge, forcing a human to struggle with nature and himself. This region attracts people who are looking for freedom and independence – everything here depends on a human; as there is no roads, electricity and hundreds of kilometres away from the nearest community. Our hero is a horse breeder living in a tundra and taking care of his cattle. He feels himself estranged in his own house, having no time to see his children grow ; and every year, Sergei spends more time away from his village, only meeting his family several times per year on horse breeders festivities and while bringing home horsemeat. A harassing living routine in the North shows who exactly is this human in reality.
