Woman and the Glacier

The Lithuanian scientist Aušra Revutaite has spent thirty years in the Tian Shan mountain range in Central Asia. Some 3.500 meters above sea level with only her faithful dog and gray cat for company, she studies climate change on the Tujuksu glacier. Magnificent shots of her surroundings and everyday work are interspersed with archive footage of the people who preceded her by a century.
