The condition of Baikal nowadays is called an ecological catastrophe. Dashi Namdakov, a world-famous sculptor from Buryatia, decided to make a main sculpture of his life – “Father Baikal” as a present for his Homeland.
The sculptures of Dashi are bought worldwide in Russia, USA, Britain, China, New Zealand, Spain, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, France, Finland, Taiwan, Italy and other countries.
The sculpture was created to attract public attention to the environmental problems of lake Baykal. But will the Motherland accept the present of an “Asian Dali”? Can a piece of art stop the ecological catastrophe?
These are the questions raised by the documentary film “Father Baikal”.
