This classic film by Robert Flaherty, shot in 1922, documents one year in the life of Nanook, an Inuit hunter and his family as they struggle to survive in the harsh conditions of Canada's Hudson Bay region. Without the use of dialogue, this piece describes the trading, hunting, fishing and migrations of a group barely touched by industrial technology.
