Teaser for the film Onaeng (Mari priest) by Andrew Ogorodnikov.
There is a belief that the world was formed from the egg of a celestial duck, and the man was created from silt collected from the bottom of the endless ocean. In the east of the European part of Russia, the Mari people live, whose worldview and national culture are counted by centuries of history. They are called the only and last pagans of Europe, whose prayers are conveyed to the Great God of Light – Kugu Jumo, by the intermediary between people and gods – ONAENG.
