Video: Surviving in the Siberian Wilderness for 70 Years by Vice (Mini-Documentary)


This is one of the most interesting mini-documentaries I’ve ever seen. This 35-minute video explores the story of the “Lykovs family”, a family of Russian Old Believers who journeyed deep into Siberia’s vast taiga to escape persecution and protect their way of life. The family has lived there since 1936, and Vice interviewed the last surviving member, Agafia Lykov. She was born in 1944, and has lived there her entire life, refusing to move.
