The movie featuring Ivan in Russia and Tucson was shot by my neighbour
Jean Afanassief, french director, ( not russian, his grand father was
russian. ) Jean is a long time mate of me. Jean was a former climber.
He was the first french alpinist on top of Everest in 1978. I invited
him also to sail around Antarctica in 1989/1990.
I introduced Ivan to Jean ( check my name on the rewards at the end of
The movie was shot both in Sikhote Alin area and and China river too.
The meteorite shown is Chinga.
My 2 cents.
