Films related to the hunter gatherer lifestyle

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 07, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Hello, I am trying to compile a list of films that are relevant to the hunter gatherer lifestyle theme. I am not looking for documentaries, instead, entertaining films linked to the subject. The best example I came up with was: walkabout

Other than that, the Tarzan films, which I see as too fictional. If anyone has any suggestions, please point me to them, thanks

Herzog's new film is called "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" and although it is a documentary it is about paleolithic cave paintings. To me it suggests new ideas about the nature of art and the Paleo artist. Although we usually think of cave paintings as simplistic or primitive, apparently these paintings show great virtuosity. Can't wait to see this one.

They try to conserve Inuit culture tradtion and media. Ajanurat the Fast Runner. is great. So much work. So nice craft. On isuma.tv you find the following films. The Knut Rassmusen Journal and Before Tommorow. Also Isuma short films. And The new film its a documentary inuit and climate change. Go for it. you will defintly learn sometihng. And maybe more relaxed with ure diet after.

You can't consider any of the fictional or dramatic without considering the factual. Beyond Survival is more than relevant to the hunter gatherer lifestyle. The series is on youtube.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwav8-pcdxw

I saw these two in the same week and found Ten Canoes to be a little disappointing, although I thought the depiction of the fear and violence that accompanied inter-group relations was amazing. The Fast Runner = Atanarjuat. Everyone should see that movie. It is so good.

Into the Wild

After he gets to Alaska he tries to live off the land. It's a great movie even if it doesn't fit your criteria I recommend it.

Try Alone in the Wilderness. Guy moves to the remote wilds of Alaska for 30 years... doesn't eat paleo (lots of sugar, beans, and flour), but does a lot of his own hunting. A fascinating, inspiring, and relaxing movie.

Nanook of the North. The first documentary, 1922. A year in the life of an Inuit. Hunting, fishing, igloo building, family life, and contact with white people. Available on the web:

There's a doc about Werner Herzog's troubled attempt to make his film in the Amazon, it's called "Burden of Dreams" and is worth watching (available on Netflix streaming I think). Yes its a documentary... but you have to see the buff calves on some of those female natives as they trek barefoot through the wild jungle with baskets of stuff on their back! Amazing. Aslo some encroaching influence of western diet is spotted.

You can also check out some hunter gatherer authenticity in Herzog's own films, Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo.

Another good doc is "The Endurance" about the Shackleton expedition to Antartica. Amazing film footage for being in the barren wilderness in 1916. They had to survive on penguin, fish, seal, eventually dog.

I watched a recent movie from sci fi channel online, "the Lost Future" it is about a future of humanity after some kind of war, and it is about a group of hunter-gatherers and what they go through in this future world. It also has mutated creatures they hunt, and zombies :) good action as well. Check it out!

The obvious choices will be listed here.

Don't forget films about minimalism and building communities. I highly suggest a Les Stroud show "Beyond Survival." His "Survivorman" series is also most excellent. Travel Channel has "Bizzare Foods." These will satisfy a more non-fictional take and directly answer your question.

The San

I also suggest "Jeremiah Johnson" simply because it kicks ass.
