Nanook of the North (1922)

By Robert J. Flaherty


This is the first full-length, anthropological documentary film in the history of World Cinema.
Film-maker Robert J. Flaherty spends one year with Nanook and his family. His work presents the life of a small group of Inuits, living in the Arctic Circle, barely touched by modern civilisation.

An enthralling documentary and a visual feat, Nanook of the North fascinates with its dramatic depiction of life in an extremely hostile environment.
