Description

Subtitled A Story Of Life and Love in the Actual Arctic, this is the groundbreaking film that launched a genre. It was Flaherty’s genius to combine ethnography, the travelogue, and fictional filmmaking techniques to reveal the human drama of one Inuit family’s survival in the extreme conditions of Canada’s Hudson Bay. Despite its arguable claim to authenticity, it is told with respect and sensitivity and remains an astonishing work.
