"Visually stunning journey, exploring human existence" Purchased on Mighty Ape

An exemplary marriage of stunning visuals and amazing soundtrack. This is the best thing I have seen for some time. It is indeed a ‘guided meditation’ and a very thought provoking one. From the confronting to the awesomely beautiful it examines the way we live … And questions without speaking. I am a Buddhist but I believe most people would be moved by this film.

"scenic, well photographed, but samsara-"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I heard this had a Buddhist flavour. I am a Buddhist, and though the images presented were beautifully done, I did not find the Buddhist teaching element I was hoping for. My assumption that the term ‘samsara’ (or Sangsara) was an indication of something more philosiphical was evidently at fault. My disappointment seems to have been my own creation. Sorry folks.

"Brilliant Photography"

A breath-taking montage of the amazing diversity of our planet. 10/10

Description

The team behind ‘Baraka’ reunites for another journey around the world in ‘Samsara’, exploring themes of birth, life, death and rebirth through stunning visuals and music. ‘Samsara’ is a Tibetan word that means “the ever turning wheel of life”.

BARAKA director Ron Fricke reunites with producer Mark Magidson to expand on their effort to portray the connections between humanity and nature in a bold way. Shot for over four years and across 26 countries, the film transports us through multiple cultures to sacred grounds, disaster sites, industrialized zones and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, the filmmakers subvert our expectations of a documentary. Instead, they encourage our own interpretations inspired by mesmerising visuals and musical compositions that infuse the ancient with the modern.

Through powerful, breathtaking images pristinely photographed in 70mm and a dynamic music score, for filmgoers who cherished the revelations of BARAKA almost twenty years ago, SAMSARA proves to be worth the wait.
