TBT: Eastern Rises

So good.

The Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East may as well be the end of the Earth. Its enormously wild landscape is swarming with bugs and bears and threaded with rivers full of massive mouse-eating trout. In this stunning film, fishing is poetry, Bigfoot lurks in the fog and fishermen risk life and limb in decommissioned Cold War helicopters to explore rivers that have never been fished before.
