Struggling along an unforgiving dirt path, drivers Yura and Vitalik haul supplies to waiting villagers in an aging tank made of spare parts. This documentary is a glimpse into the coarse—and rather scandalous—world of hard, simple living in north-easternmost Russia.

31st Haul

Filmmaker Denis Klebleev delivers a keenly observation into this microcosm of rural Russia.

Struggling along swamps, bugs and impassable mountain ranges drivers Yura and Vitalik haul supplies to waiting villagers in an aging tank made of spare parts.

At the other end waits Yura’s wife Sveta, a brash, foul-mouthed woman who rules the roost and their delivery business.

Their hard labour whets voracious appetites for cursing, drink, rampant sexism and literal tons of hauled food.

Beautifully composed shots reveal a rough romanticism for a way of life so foreign to most, and so passionately lived by the few who take it on.

31st Haul is an original and rarely seen study of human relationships.
