Thanks to our friends Icon Film Distribution, APSA has 10 double passes to give away for Silent Souls.

When Miron’s beloved wife Tanya passes away, he asks his best friend Aist to help him say goodbye to her according to the rituals of the Merja culture, an ancient Finno-Ugric tribe from Lake Nero, a picturesque region in West-Central Russia.  Although the Merja people assimilated into Russians in the 17th century, their myths and traditions live on in their descendants’ modern life.  The two men set out on a roadtrip thousands of miles across the boundless lands.  With them, two small birds in a cage.  Along the way, as is custom for the Merjas, Miron shares intimate memories of his married life.  But as they reach the banks of the sacred lake where they will forever part with the body, he realises he wasn’t the only one in love with Tanya…

 

The competition is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
