  • Nanook of the North

    1922. USA. Directed, photographed, edited, and coproduced by Robert Flaherty. MoMA presents the world premiere of its newly restored and tinted original silent release of Flaherty’s landmark debut film. A pioneering work of “fictionalized” nonfiction cinema—which seems as timely and provocative as ever in today’s age of staged film reenactments—Nanook is a dramatic portrait of Inuit culture, ritual, and survival in the harsh northern wilderness, famous for its walrus hunt and igloo-building scenes. Silent. Approx. 75 min.
