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.
View all Nanook of the North reviews
Documents one year in the life of Nanook, an Eskimo (Inuit) and his family. Describes the trading, hunting, fishing and migrations of a group barely touched by industrial technology. Nanook of the North was widely shown and praised as the first full-length, anthropological documentary in cinematographic history.
