Werner Herzog Happy People of the Taiga

This is definitely worth your 90 minutes. The documentary follows a couple of hunters from a remote Siberian village of 300. They each have a 1,500 square mile territory to trap fur in the winter time. It's amazing what these guys can do with a dog and an ax. The men are not necessarily happy in the Western sense, but they are content under very harsh conditions.
