These Moments of Shine: A Dokumentary by Camille Pavlenko
These Moments of Shine: A Dokumentary imagines four unlikely Siberian women have set out to make their own Hollywood film, a kind of response to Werner Herzog's 2010 documentary, Happy People, about their not-so-tiny lives in their small, isolated village on the shores of the Yenisei River in Siberia. Their long-kept secrets, passions, rivalries, and ideas of what art might be are exposed and threaten their endeavor from the moment they hit ‘record’.
