What’s at stake when a group of humans gather in an isolated location? That’s one of the questions that drove acclaimed French filmmaker and artist Clément Cogitore to the remote reaches of the Siberian taiga, where two families, the Braguines and the Kilines, live in autonomy and bitter rivalry on the Yenisei river, 450 miles from the nearest village. BRAGUINO is a brilliant documentary, both enchanting and troubling, at times taking the shape of an ethnographic film, at others that of a western.
