Nanook Of The North

Here is what YouTube has of Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North. Often hailed as the first documentary this film is most definitely not one. The smiling face of Nyla, the co-star in the film, is Martha Flaherty's grandmother. It is a cruel irony that the descendants of the man who popularized the Inuit and their way of life across the world were flung into the reaches of the far North, forgotten and left to starve.
