Solitude in Siberia

Agafya Lykova is a 70 year old woman who was born into isolation in the Siberian forest, where she has lived, 150km away from the nearest town, for her entire life. She did not encounter another human aside from her close family until the age of 40, and the last member of her family died 25 years ago. Since then she has lived alone. Hastings Filmmaker and owner of the Electric Palace cinema, Rebecca E Marshall, explains how you can help her bring Agafya’s story to the big screen.
