In the middle of the Siberian taiga, 450 miles from the nearest village live two families: the Braguine and the Kiline. Not a single road leads there. A long trip on the Yenissei River, first by boat, then by helicopter, is the only way to reach Braguino.
Self-sufficient, both families live there according to their own rules and principles. In the middle of the village: a barrier. The two families refuse to speak to each other. In the river sits an island, where another community is being built: that of the children. Free, unpredictable, wild.
Stemming from the fear of the other, that of wild beasts, and the joy procured by the immensity of the forest, unravels a cruel tale in which tensions and fear give shape to the geography of an ancestral conflict.

Clément Cogitore (1983, Colmar) developed his artistic practice halfway between Cinema and Contemporary Art. Combining film, video, installations and photographs, Cogitore questions the modalities of cohabitation between humankind and its own images and representations.
