This short film is about the “Japan” area of Kandalaksha, possibly called so because of its remoteness from the rest of the city. In the days prior to railroad construction however is was “the” Kandalaksha. The film is in Russian but images are almost realistic except that the operator had chosen an unusually sunny day and took care to keep piles of garbage out of the camera’s range. In reality it is a gloomy cluttered place.
Monastic Cape is one of my favorite places in Kandalaksha.
