Stanislaw Mucha

The cold can be healing. Somehow this also applies to Stanislaw Mucha's new documentary. In Wettermacher, however, he does not show people visiting a cold chamber for a few minutes to promote blood circulation. Mucha accompanies three meteorologists not far from the Siberian polar sea. At the local weather station “Chodovaricha” they observe the weather, and we observe them: a professional soldier traumatised in the Chechen war, who retained himself as a meteorologist, his wife, who turned her back on her failed life as well as their little daughter and their ominous boss, suffering from cancer and already retired. They lead an everyday life in total seclusion, which they hope will heal old wounds. But even in the most remote place on earth, heated conflicts are inevitable if life is to be lived.
