How I Ended This Summer (Russian: Как я провёл этим летом, translit. Kak ya provyol etim letom) is a 2010 Russian drama film directed by Alexei Popogrebski. It was nominated for the Golden Bear at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.[1]


Two men, Sergei in a senior and Pavel (Grigoriy Dobrygin) in a junior position, work at an isolated meteorological station on an Arctic island. While Sergei is on an unauthorized fishing trip, Pavel is informed that Sergei's family have been killed in an accident. Pavel is supposed to tell this to Sergei, but he does not.[2]



The main location for filming was the Valkarkay polar station on the Chukchi Sea in Arctic Russia.[3]
