Synopsis

Regarded as a milestone in cinema history, this was the first full-length documentary to win worldwide popularity and acclaim. American filmmaker Robert Joseph Flaherty had trained a single camera on an Inuit man called Nanook. Camping out in 1922 in a sub-arctic out-post of Canada, Flaherty recorded dazzling shots of Nanook's eternal wrestle with the unforgiving elements. After finishing this silent film, Flaherty noted that ''these people, with less resources than any other people on earth, are the happiest I have ever met.''

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
