In 1919, an ambitious film crew set off on a coast-to-coast journey in order to chronicle Canada’s vast wildness. For over six months they filmed a country populated by Aboriginal and Inuit trappers, Scottish fur traders and the families that lived in the shadow of one of the oldest corporations on Earth: the Hudson’s Bay Company. Forgotten for decades, this footage from the finished film, The Romance of the Far Fur Country, reveals a long-gone era of exploration, exploitation and the harsh climate of Canada’s most remote regions.
