Watch Happy People: A Year in the Taiga

"The director of Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Grizzly Man takes you on an epic journey into the heart of the Siberian wilderness"

Directed by famed visionary documentary filmmaker, Werner Herzog, the film is a documentary about the life and times of the isolated people of the Taiga, in Siberia, known as the Bakhtia. The Bakhtia are a reclusive and hardy people who survive mainly through hunting and trapping and a great deal of the film focuses on their practices in these matters as well as the sable fur trade.

The film also briefly touches upon the neighboring Ket people who are generally regarded as the last surviving members of the original inhabitants of Siberia. Much of the footage used by Herzog was not shot continuously but rather was used from previous excursions.
