If you think Colorado is snowy, wait until you see the snow-covered vistas in this film. The taiga, rough terrain that surrounds the remote village where the movie was filmed, hosts some the harshest conditions in the world. Director Werner Herzog, known for his other nature documentaries Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, provides an authentic glimpse into the ultimately triumphant endeavours of the film’s Happy People—fur trappers living in the Siberian wilderness. Expect breathtaking views of nature and endearing tales during Herzog’s encapsulation of a year in the life of the remote village’s people. Daily, times vary.
