Happy People: A Year In The Taiga.

Definitely one of the best films I've seen in a while. The amount of fortitude Sable trappers have while enduring the remote and extreme landscape of the Siberian Taiga is mind boggling.

"Deep in the wilderness, far away from civilization, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia at the river Yenisei. There are only two ways to reach this outpost: by helicopter or boat. There's no telephone, running water or medical aid, The locals, whose daily routines have barely changed over the last centuries, live according to their own values and cultural traditions." 

Modern day Dick Proenneke's.

Directed by Werner Herzog and Dimitry Vasyukov.
