Happy People: A Year In The Taiga - Preview

Happy People

Preview by Jack Foley

GROUND-BREAKING director Werner Herzog presents yet another awe-inspiring documentary, Happy People, following the lives of the indigenous people living in the heart of the Siberian Taiga.

Following his brilliant films Grizzly Man, Encounters at The End Of The World and Cave Of Forgotten Dreams, Werner Herzog explores a fascinating untouched world in this outstanding feature-documentary that comes to DVD for the first time on November 28, 2011 courtesy of Second Sight Films.

Deep within this remote landscape, facing the most hostile conditions on earth, 300 people inhabit the small Bakhtia at the river Yenisei in the Siberian Taiga.

There are only two ways to reach this outpost, by helicopter and by boat. In this wilderness there are no phones, no running water, no medical aid.

The people live according to their own values and cultural traditions, which have remained unchanged for centuries.

With his wonderfully evocative narration accompanying the breath-taking imagery, Werner Herzog brings us another remarkable encounter.
