    Werner Herzog travels to Siberia to observe miracle healers, self-proclaimed saviours who profess to be Christ’s successors, and people performing strange, almost incomprehensible rituals near remote Lake Svetloyar.

    The films have been brought to you with the generous help from the Goethe Institute.
