Pomor Women


Pomor Women

For centuries Pomors have inhabited the coast of the White Sea. All their life was inseparably associated with the sea. From sea they accepted gifts. To sea they sacrificed. Pomor women were the faithful companions of fishermen. Even now they live in small villages on the White Sea shore. But crafts are disappearing and Pomor women are going away. The film depicts the everyday life of the last of them.
