About the Film
From the creators of the award-winning film Baraka: Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, comes a new non-verbal masterpiece. Filmed over a five-year period in 25 countries across five continents, Samsara transports us via stunning Panavision Super 70 cinematography to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, Samsara subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary. It encourages our own interpretations, inspired by breathtaking images that infuse the ancient with the modern and set against a mesmerizing musical score featuring the work of Lisa Gerrard, Michael Stearns and Marcello De Francisci.
I went to see this film as soon as it was released in the UK. It is quite simply a stunning piece of film with a beautiful soundtrack. Ever heard the expression a picture paints a thousand words? Well this film takes that expression to a new level with this film. It takes you on a journey. When you have watched it, you will realise how unusual we are as humans, and how unnecessarily complex our lives are.
You must view this in HD to see the real beauty.
Clean, Simple, Spellbinding
This is an amazing piece of cinematography. Needs to be watched in HD to appreciate the beauty.
I had high expectations after watching Baraka, but this was a major let down.
