Observation supersedes explication in Audrius Stonys’s magnificent portrait of Lithuanian scientist Aušra Revutaite, who has spent more than thirty-five years on the Tuyuksu glacier in Kazahkstan studying the effects of climate change. Initially reluctant to be recorded, Revutaite finally agreed to participate in the film after seeing footage of the mountains shot by Stonys and his crew, and the imposing landscape steals the show. Alone in a vast wilderness, Revutaite barely speaks in the film; instead, this portrait of patience, persistence, and solitude allows us to share her view.
