Robert J. Flaherty (1884-1951)

“Between Flaherty’s major feature-length films, ‘Nanook of the North’ (1922), ‘Moana’ (1926), ‘Man of Aran’ (1934), ‘Elephant Boy’ (1937), and ‘Louisiana Story’ (1948), he made several smaller ones outside the epic man-against-nature format. More than 50 years after his death, Flaherty’s name still stands out among the most celebrated in motion picture history.” –Cecile Starr

“Long considered the father of documentary film, his films are unmatched in the entire history of cinema and remain seen and loved by peoples all over the world. More a poet than storyteller, his films evoke a quiet realism though they are dramatized fictions of the subjects photographed. He considered ‘Moana’ the most accomplished of all his films.” —Bruce Posner
