Land Without Trees, or The Mouchouânipi

Le pays de la terre sans arbre

Directed by Pierre Perrault
Canada, 1980
Documentary

Synopsis

As tales of old hunts are overlaid on modern-day footage, this documentary emerges more as an interrogation than a narrative. Who, then, truly owns this territory of Mouchouânipi, home to a nomadic Native Canadian people whose rituals daily restore the ages-old poetry of harmony.
