New Werner Herzog Film ‘Happy People: A Year in the Taiga’ Gets Trailer

You know how Werner Herzog likes to hop from feature films to feature documentaries? Well this is one of his documentary efforts and it comes with a typically odd title: Happy People: A Year in the Taiga. We say “odd” because the film isn’t actually about people who smile for the duration of the film. Furthermore, these particular people brave some incredibly low temperatures in the Siberian Taiga of the title. Brrrr. 

Herzog follows 300 inhabitants of the Taiga over one year as they manage to get by without telephones, washing machines, TVs, iPads and local cinemas. CAN YOU IMAGINE IT?! 

'Happy People' opens in select US theatres from January 25.
