  • Robert J. Flaherty's first work influenced the course of film history throughout the world. It is a rare look at a rapidly vanishing culture and a timeless tribute to the human spirit. This restored version (1977), true to Flaherty's vision, is accompanied by an original score composed by Stanley Silverman and recorded by the Tashi Ensemble under the direction of Peter Serkin.
