Happy People: A Year In The Taiga
With Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, iconic filmmaker Werner Herzog embarks on another unforgettable journey into the heart of a remote natural environment. Deep in the Siberian wilderness, a mere 300 people inhabit the village of Bakhta on the Yenisei River. The outpost can only be reached in two ways: boat and helicopter. The locals, whose daily routines have hardly changed over the centuries, live self-reliantly according to their cultural traditions. Featuring insightful narration by Herzog, Happy People follows the villagers through the Taiga's four season to tell the incredible story of a society untouched by modernity.
