Happy People Trailer: Werner Herzog Makes Snow Angels

After spending December evilly trying to prevent Jack Reacher from reaching for jacks, Werner Herzog is back doing what he does best: making documentaries about man's relationship to nature. Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, which will premiere in select theaters later this month, focuses on Bakhta, the 300-person Siberian village at the river Yenisei. The documentary follows a "Siberian [trapper] through all four seasons of the year to tell the story of a culture virtually untouched by modernity." And there will be a shot of albino crocodiles for no reason. Okay, there probably won't be, but there might — you know never know with Werner Herzog.
