Trailer Of The Week - Week #44

Continuing Trailer Of The Week's build-up to the 25th Leeds Film Festival is the elongated trailer for Happy People: A Year In The Taiga, a documentary shot in Siberia by director Dmitry Vasyukov. Whilst Vasyukov might not be a household name, the co-writer, executive producer and narrator certainly is: one Werner Herzog is behind this film about the isolated people of the Taiga, a large ecoregion in Northern Russia. Herzog's presence makes this a must-see for fans of his previous documentaries and, despite the German not being the one behind the camera, the footage on display looks to have plenty of promise. With the addition of Herzog's vocal talents (sadly not included here) this could very well turn out to be a documentary of some note. The film can be seen at Leeds on 13th November, with a DVD release set to follow on 28th November.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
