The sun sets on a city Russia doesn’t want you to see.
In Norilsk the smog of the factory chimneys prepares to be engulfed by 40 days of night. Polar winter is here. This is the story of those who see colour amidst the darkness in a part of the world where the snow is black and the air tastes of sulphur.
Black Snow has premiered on Nowness and is part of the short film scheme 'Postcards', from Just So & Sheffield Doc/Fest.
Postcards is a platform for both emerging and established film-makers to create short documentaries that push the conventions of non-fiction.
