Directed by David Hartford | 1919

With Nell Shipman, Charles Arling, Wheeler Oakman

One of the most dynamic personalities both on and off screen in the silent era, Canadian producer and director Nell Shipman wrote and stars in this Far North-set adventure about a resourceful frontierswoman who uses her wits to survive in the Arctic while fending off menacing men. Shot through with Shipman’s reverence for nature (she was an early champion of animal rights), Back to God’s Country became the most successful Canadian film of the silent era.
