Flaherty commenced shooting NANOOK in 1913, not 1920!  He had taken a
3-week crash-course in filmmaking from Kodak in Rochester before hand!
Needless to say (I should have thought), Kodak did not teach Flaherty how
to strain reindeer hair out of water brought in buckets, how to print by
exposing bits of film held together against the light passing through a
chink in the filler between the logs of a cabin, etc.; and to claim that
Flaherty, by 1913, had been a "filmmaker since 1912" nearly passes
understanding.
