Nanook of the North - Notes

I think the filmmaker's intent when making this film was to capture the life of the Nanook and show how they live and what they do to survive. Since there is no sound or dialogue, the story is told through shots of the Eskimos in action with cutaways to text that give brief explanations of what is happening. Another way this film seems like a documentary is that the information it gives is straight facts about the Nanook, it isn't a fictional narrative.
