Silent film with captions and nice instrumental sound-track. I got this film after reading a short biography about Robert Flaherty. Be sure to pay attention to the early scene in the film when Nanook pulls up to shore in his kayak and the moments after he gets out.--surprising and funny and amazing. What a life! What hardships! I highly recommend this historically significant film. Spoiler alert--don't read the next patron's comment until after you see the film.
