Natalija Yefimkina’s Garagenvolk explores a different way of life in the Russian far North—garage settlements. Set in the Kola Peninsula, beyond the Arctic Circle, the film follows the lives of men in a mining community who utilize garages for either hobbies or businesses. Garagenvolk creates a lively and unorthodox representation of life in the Russian far North, alive with humor, spirituality, and irreverence. [95 mins; documentary; Russian with English subtitles] A Q&A with Dr. Marya Rozanova-Smith and Prof. Russell Scott Valentino will follow the screening.
