Directed by Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov,94 min.,2010

In English and Russian with English subtitles

Werner Herzog's movie, Happy People: A Year In The Taiga, is a documentary about Siberian fur trappers who live and work in extreme conditions. Of course, the title refers to a Herzogian definition of happiness, which has everything to do with his subjects' ability to face a hard life with fortitude, skill, endurance and a deep understanding of and respect for their hostile environment.

  • Acclaimed director Werner Herzog received a lifetime achievement award from the German Film Academy at this year's German film awards, the Lolas. He will also receive the Pardo d’onore Swisscom, a tribute to major contemporary filmmakers, at the 66th edition of the Locarno Filmfestival this summer. During the August festival 10 of his films will be shown.

    I was not sure what to expect but I was not disappointed. I loved the film and walked away with insight and admiration beyond my expectations!
