Was Mordor actually in Siberia

I haven’t watched much classic Soviet-era Russian television, but I imagine that little of the content was as weird as the recently rediscovered version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Embedded below are parts 1 and 2 of the production that has had the fans buzzing this past week. Even if you’re not a huge fan, it’s worth a look for the crazy, lo-fi special effects and oddball Soviet interpretations of the classic fantasy tale. This crazy made-for-TV movie was re-titled Khranteli  or The Keepers. Fans of Soviet era rock music will want to check it out just for the soundtrack.
