Samsara

United States | 2011 | Ron Fricke

Samsara

Ron Fricke, the cinematographer of Koyaanisqatsi and director of Baraka, returns with another visually stunning, non-verbal movie filmed in remote, exotic locations around the world. Shot on large-format 70mm film over a period of five years in 25 countries and five continents, Samsara (the title is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever-turning wheel of life”) captures sacred rituals, natural wonders, huge industrial complexes, and epic disaster areas in a series of eye-popping, mind-blowing images married to music. (Fricke calls it a “guided meditation.”) The end result is a spectacular snapshot of our planet, teeming with people situated somewhere between the everyday and the eternal.
