Director, actor and musician Garik Sukachev will go to Sakhalin and make a film. In the documentary tape we will talk about the island and its ancient inhabitants - the Ainu people. He plans to start choosing locations for filming in the second half of June, if circumstances permit.

The project is supported by the Russian Geographical Society. According to Sukachev, employees of the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk sent him materials, gave contacts to scientists. He also announced plans to visit the film archive in Krasnogorsk, where there are documentary materials on Ainu and Nivkhs.

Garik Sukachev intends to start work on the film in June. According to him, Sakhalin has a rich history, which is important and interesting to tell. The musician admitted that he really loves Sakhalin and wants to “see it with his own eyes in full” and show it to the public.

An ancient tribe of Ainu - hunters and fishermen who worshiped the spirits of nature, inhabited Sakhalin, the Japanese and Kuril Islands, Kamchatka and the lower reaches of the Amur. They did not have a political system and writing. Now Ainu live in Japan, their number is 25 thousand people.
