For the Yukaghir, an indigenous people of the Siberian taiga, hunting sable is both and economic necessity and a spiritual experience. Since the fall of Communism, a corrupt regional corporation has monopolised the fur trade, forcing the Yukaghir hunters into impoverished servitude.

On the Run in Siberia is the chilling tale of living in exile among the Yukaghir hunters in the stark Siberian taiga region – a story of idealism, political corruption, starvation and survival. It is also a striking portrait of the Yukaghirs’ shamanistic tradition and their threatened way of life, a drama unfolding daily in one of the world’s coldest, most enthralling landscapes.
