If you love Werner Herzog as much as I love Werner Herzog, then this trailer for his newest film, Happy People: A Year In The Taiga is for you.  If you don’t love Werner Herzog, there’s obviously something wrong with you, because Werner Herzog, as well as being one of the finest filmmakers of our age, is also just awesome.

Being awesome does not necessarily mean that you make great movies – although in this case, it does. The new trailer for Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov’s documentary Happy People: A Year In The Taiga, about the indigenous people of a remote area of Siberia, is simply stunning.  More adjectives? Beautiful. Transcendent. Epic. Cold. And this is just the trailer.

Happy People: A Year In The Taiga has been making the festival rounds for awhile now, but we’re finally going to get it on the big screen come January 25 – if, »
