Samsara
director:
Ron Fricke

From the creators of Baraka comes Samsara, a new, non-verbal documentary filmed over five years in 25 countries on 70mm film. Samsara is a Tibetan word that means “the ever turning wheel of life,” and Ron Fricke describes the film as a “guided meditation on the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.” From Buddhist monks creating a sand mandala in Ladakh to the surreal wreckage left in Katrina’s wake, from Muslim pilgrims circling around the tomb at Mecca to the Chateau de Versailles in France, the film is filled with mesmerizing images and haunting music. “Visually breathtaking. Unlike anything you will ever see.” (Indiewire)
