Deep within this remote landscape, facing the most hostile conditions on earth, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia. There are only two ways to reach this outpost, by helicopter and by boat. In this wilderness there are no phones, running water or 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.

Quietly spellbinding - Happy People: A Year in Taiga review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Fascinating insight into the lives of trappers in remote Taiga region of Siberia. The kind of quality documentary we've expect from Werner Herzog
