First film by Cooper and Schoedsack following their `1924 journey with persian nomads across a vast plain, river and mountain to better grazing grounds. Quite monumental for the time period creating a landmark documentary that stands the test of time pretty well. Still some quite breathtaking images. Milestone reissue from 91 seen with new soundtrack and some colour tinting.
A revolutionary film in the documentary world, and must be seen by fans of the genre. This paints a vivid picture of life prior to the industrial revolution. We are now in the age of the digital revolution, so I feel a new doc is necessary so that future generations can understand what it was like before this era swept the world. Cooper and Schoedsack helm another winner, like the later Chang. 4 stars
