THE SILENT ENEMY (H.P. Carver, 1930)
The Ojibway Indians and their battle against hunger -the silent enemy- are the subject of this remarkable hybrid documentary. Set in the time before Columbus, it combines ethnographic authenticity with invented drama, and the nature photography is absolutely stunning. Chief Yellow Robe, who plays the head of the Ojibway tribe, introduces the story in a sound prologue. This documentary-drama contains graphic images of wild animals fighting and being killed.
