The film "Baikal. The Magic of Water" is a unique project for family viewing with a humanitarian and educational mission. The film is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2020. The project aims to attract public attention to Lake Baikal as a Russian national treasure and to consolidate the values of an environmentally friendly lifestyle.
The film was created by the Russian team from the Novoye Vremya production centre together with the Krasnyi Kvadrat media group with support from the Baikal Lake Preservation Fund and Moskvarium. The filming process required 14 expeditions to Baikal and six to other places on our planet: India, China, Kazakhstan, East Africa, Bolivia, and the U.S. The cameramen conducted unique shootings in the 4K format. The film shows Lake Baikal's nature, the life of its fauna, and the world and life of the indigenous ethnic group. The story of a mother seal’s love for her cub is given special prominence; it tells about the cub growing up and its exciting journey through the Baikal waters. The project reflects the relationship of man with nature through legends and myths told by a grandfather to his grandson. The film is voiced by the Russian stars Konstantin Khabensky and Tutta Larsen.
The meet-the-artist event will be held as part of the Baikal. The Magic of Water themed festival, which will last until 5 December. See the whole festival schedule at www.moskvarium.ru.
