Criterion Edition. This is not the original print, some scenes have been left out. The score is also not the original, and was composed by Timothy Brook in 1998.

Nanook of the North was filmed from 1920-1921 in Port Harrison, Northern Quebec by Robert Joseph Flaherty. This was the first successful documentary ever made, and was a true benchmark for ethnographic film. Robert Flaherty brought and entirely unknown culture to the western world.

The Flaherty family lived in Port Arthur Ontario from 1901-1905, and one of my relatives by the name of Hans Haugen held a photograph album from Robert Flaherty. Hans Haugen owned the general store at Loon Lake, where the Flahertys had their summer home. I've obtained a photograph called "The Sharks at Loon" containing Robert J. Flaherty, his father Robert H. Flaherty, and a few prominent family members of Port Arthur at the time it was taken. The Flaherty Cabin still stands at Loon Lake, and their former home is located on Algoma Street in Thunder Bay.
