Cree Hunters of Mistassini

Canada, 1974


An NFB crew filmed a group of three families, Cree hunters from Mistassini. Since times predating agriculture, this First Nations people have gone to the bush of the James Bay and Ungava Bay area to hunt. We see the building of the winter camp, the hunting and the rhythms of Cree family life.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
