It's a great place for dogs, Bakhtia. In winter, when the Yenisei River is frozen over in this remotest patch of Siberia (accessible only by helicopter or, in summer months, by boat), the huskies go hunting with their masters, or tag along behind undulating snowmobiles, or curl up in a patch of sun in an opening between massive firs.
When the ice thaws, they help to catch fish. The males and females breed. Puppies are born, and the cycle continues.
Although Happy People: A Year in the Taiga isn't really about the dogs, documentarian Werner Herzog is fascinated by these keen-eyed beasts, and their relationship with man. But per the title, this engaging film - which Herzog cut down to size from a four-hour Russian TV program by Dmitry Vasyukov - is about the human residents of the village in the Taiga boreal forest.
