SOYUZ IN FRENCH GUIANA
The Russian space adventure in Amazonia
How do you say "Holy Mary" in Russian? In Creole, they say "Sinnamary" as the name of the village located in the North of French Guiana where the mythical Soyuz launchers take off.
Two hundred Russians, straight from the banks of the Volga River, have been busy in the Amazon rainforest building a new launch site and starting an unprecedented human and spatial adventure. Housed in a quirky hotel, they brought a little of their lifestyle, stories, pride and doubts.
In this film, history meets culture shock.
