Music Box Films has released a new trailer for the upcoming documentary Happy People: A Year in the Taiga and you can check it out in the player below.

The film, from Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov, offers an exploration of the beautiful, harsh and elemental world of Siberian trappers living in Taiga.

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.

Herzog, condenses and re-cuts Russian filmmaker Dmitry Vasyukov’s original 4-hour production. With insightful new commentary written and narrated by Herzog himself, Happy People: A Year in the Taiga follows one of the Siberian trappers through all four seasons of the year to tell the story of a culture virtually untouched by modernity, locked in a daily struggle with the natural world.
