Film Information

Caught in the grip of a war-torn Russian winter, the city is starving to death. Despite their hunger, Alyssa and Maksim heroically work to preserve the treasures of the world's most important seed bank - treasures that hold the key to the future of their country's food supply - even though its sustenance could mean their survival.

She enjoys going to concerts and gardening.

Jessica Oreck
makes projects large and small that instill a sense of wonder about the world of the everyday. Jessica’s documentaries (Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo, Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys, The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga, and several of her shorts) have played at festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, Cairo, BFI, and many more. The Criterion Channel is currently hosting a retrospective of her earlier work. Jessica’s latest feature film, One Man Dies a Million Times will open theatrically this year. Jessica also makes bite-sized educational content, including two series for TED: Mysteries of Vernacular and In a Moment of Vision, as well as several shows for a soon-to-launch children’s network. Jessica spends most of her time curating and running a small museum called the Office of Collecting and Design in downtown Las Vegas. Through the museum, Jessica curates various associated traveling exhibits and workshops around the US.
