While a big portion of North America is currently in the grip of winter, and the snow, darkness and cold that comes with it, there are many of you that won't see one snowflake this season. But if you're looking to get (more than a) taste of what that's like, a new documentary is here to share its chilling beauty.

Happy People: A Year In The Taiga

While a big portion of North America is currently in the grip of winter, and the snow, darkness and cold that comes with it, there are many of you that won't see one snowflake this season. But if you're looking to get (more than a) taste of what that's like, a new documentary is here to share its chilling beauty.

A new trailer has landed for the Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov co-directed "Happy People: A year In The Taiga." The film takes viewers deep into the Siberian wilderness to the 300-person village of Bakhta, on the river Yenisei. Isolated, with no telephone service or running water, and only reachable by helicopter and boat, Bakhta's remoteness has allowed the routines, cultures, values and traditions to carry over unchanged for generations. And centering on a single trapper, Herzog's always soothing tone guides viewers to a world they've likely never seen.

Okay, so it's not exactly like the winter anyone you know experiences, but it looks like a unique journey nonetheless. 'Happy People' opens on January 25th. Watch below.
