Robert Flaherty's classic film tells the story of Inuit hunter Nanook and his family as they struggle to survive in the harsh conditions of Canada's Hudson Bay region. Enormously popular when released in 1922, Nanook of the North is a cinematic milestone that continues to enchant audiences. In 2005 film critic Roger Ebert described Nanook as "one of the most vital and unforgettable human beings ever recorded on film."
