Happy People: A Year in the Taiga

2013 | 94 minutes | Rated NR

In this documentary, the great German director Werner Herzog takes us to a village in the subarctic Siberian taiga. The village has 300 souls who are sustained by hunting. The hunters are stoic and resourceful, and spend a good amount of time alone in the woods trapping animals, netting fish, and shooting birds. These men show emotional warmth not when speaking about their families, but about their dogs. Life for them is a search for the right dog, the dog that will obey commands, assist in a hunt, and be ready to sacrifice its life for its master. (CHARLES MUDEDE)
