Questo documentario รจ molto originale, sebbene sia un film muto, mostra molto bene la vita degli eschimesi e le loro abitudini


This documentary is very original, although it is a silent film, it shows very well the life of Eskimos and their habits.

Excellent docu-movie about life in the deep north. Considering the date of this movie it is quite amazing. Real great look at ethnicity.
