BEHIND THE BLACK MOUNTAINS
A really strong man would never show his power. The real shaman is the same. He would never shout about it. His fame is given from lip to lip. Everybody knows him, and everybody keeps in a secret. He has no gongs and no honors. He is doomed to live in the complete darkness and to go behind the black mountains in the total loneliness.
There are almost no real shamans left on earth. But there are a lots of people, who try to make us to believe, that they have an unbelievable magical powers, that they can fly, can predict the future and rule the world of the spirits. But it turns out to be a lies. But why such a people are always at your sight? Why the most of us consider them a real shamans?
A really strong man would never show his power. The real shaman is the same. He would never shout about it. His fame is given from lip to lip. Everybody knows him, and everybody keeps in a secret. He has no gongs and no honors. He is doomed to live in the complete darkness and to go behind the black mountains in the total loneliness.
The movie “Behind the black mountains” tells about the three shamans, who live in Tuva at the Mongolian border, at the border between the real world and the world of the visions. All of them are the blade runners between the illusion, the truth and the false. And each of them is lonely and misunderstood. And each of them strays in the darkness, moving behind the black  mountains… Each of them.

URSDON: THE TERRITORY OF LONELINESS
40 years ago there were more then 500 houses in the Caucasian village of Ursdon. Now there are only 3 left. The strong men live here...
The main character of the movie Viktor Ambalov is the habitant of the mountain village Ursdon, Northern Ossetia. 40 years ago there were more than 500 houses, and now there are only three left. The name “Ursdon” means “The White River”. Viktor lives in very tough conditions, his way of life is humble: he sleeps in a ground-level of his big two-story house, together with just-kittened sheep and lambs. His food are only milk and bread. There are no comfort – only a cold water from the barrel instead of bath.
Every morning he leaves for the mountains to herd sheep and comes back only late in the evening. Viktor Ambalov is 80 years old, but you never can figure it out if you look at him. There are no women in Ursdon. Only four men live there. They would tell you about Viktor’s strange nature.
