Happy People: A Year In The Taiga, a 2010 documentary by Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukow which takes us to the surreal landscape of the Siberia Taiga in Russia to follow indigenous people who live by the river Yenisei.


The film shows us a completely different culture that is absolutely nothing like our own and one that has not changed in centuries. Many millennials would find it hard to go a day without "gramming" something, but this documentary shows us that simple things in life really do bring happiness.


So prepare to step into a different world which has retained skills that most of western society has lost in the Happy People: A Year In The Taiga documentary. It's worth noting that Herzog documentaries tend to be pretty epic so there is no doubting that this one is going to be on par too.
