“We got up and looked at the place where the Dyatlovs’ tent had been: there were two mountain peaks there. And in complete silence, a fireball flew from one peak to the other, rotating. And when it reached the other peak and sort of hit it, there was a flash like that of welding, followed by a rumble, as if from an explosion.”

Viktor Klimenko, Soldier.

Dyatlov Pass is a horror documentary about the mysterious deaths of nine Soviet students in the Ural mountains (1959).

The interactive web documentary was made using the original photo negatives recovered from the cameras of the members of the Dyatlov group and the photographic materials of the rescue operation from the personal archive of criminal prosecutor Lev Ivanov.

    I am working on an immersive theatrical event based on this story. Where can I get access to these images, documents and videos? I am currently on the east coast and notice this is hosted by MIT. If there is something available at MIT, I would gladly make the trip to Boston.

    Thanks for your help. Great site.
