Weather Makers: Now on DVD & as VoD


As of now, February 24, the documentary "Wettermacher" is available on DVD and as VoD in the W-FILM online store as well as in regular stores. The award-winning cult director Stanislaw Mucha ("Kolyma") takes us to what is probably the loneliest workplace in the world: three weathermen measure the weather on the polar island of "Chodowaricha" without any electronics and with the simplest of tools. Unimaginable, because their work also influences our weather forecasts. But how can the three bizarre meteorologists live and work in complete isolation?




Near the Siberian polar sea lies the weather station "Chodowaricha", where the three meteorologists Vladimir, Sasha and Alexander observe the weather. They live and work there in complete isolation: only once a year does a polar ship bring long-awaited supplies. At first, their daily coexistence seems peaceful, but the constant loneliness gradually takes its toll and causes tensions to grow between the meteorologists. Especially the taciturn Vladimir, about whose past more and more dark details come to light, brings unrest to the island. But blizzards and half-starved polar bears are also omnipresent dangers that confront the weather makers. Only the sporadic visits of a few nomads, Russian pop songs and, last but not least, the watchdog Jack save them from the always tangible madness.
