Plot.

The lives of the indigenous Inuit people of Canada's northern Quebec region are depicted in a documentary film. The production vividly shows how its subjects survive in such a harsh climate, showing how they build their igloo homes, and how they find food by hunting and fishing. The Great White North is not the same as civilization.

Wiki.

Nanook of the North is a 1922 American silent documentary film by Robert J. Flaherty, with elements of docudrama, at a time when the concept of separating films into documentary and drama did not yet exist.In the tradition of what would later be called salvage ethnography, Flaherty captured the struggles of the Inuk man named Nanook and his family in the Canadian Arctic. Some have criticized Flaherty for staging several sequences, but the film is generally viewed as standing "alone in its stark regard for the courage and ingenuity of its heroes."In 1989, Nanook of the North was among the first group of 25 films selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
