Robert Flaherty's silent documentary, Nanook of the North, was a landmark film of its genre about Inuit hunter Nanook as he struggles to survive with his family in the severe conditions of the Hudson's Bay territory. This special presentation will feature live instrumentation with an original score by Nathan Reimer and provides a classically ambient and folky arrangement, marked by traditional Inuit music and other sounds of the north.
