Pevek

In September 2019, the world's first floating nuclear platform arrived in the remote town of Pevek, Russia’s northernmost Arctic community. It is a dramatic symbol of Vladimir Putin’s ambition to develop and control the Northern sea route that connects Asia and Europe. The town, a remote outpost on the Arctic Ocean, whose population in the 1990s fell by two-thirds, is now at the center of one of the biggest socioeconomic changes of the Arctic - an opportunity for some, but an intrusion for others. Against the backdrop of the extreme environment, the film is an intimate look into the lives of three protagonists with wildly different backgrounds, and equally different ambitions.
