Samsara: Amazing Film of our Diverse World (follow-up to Baraka)
Samsara is defined as "the ever turning wheel of life". Beyond just a sanskrit definition, it is an important aspect of Asian religions, like Buddhism and Hinduism. It embodies the continuous flow of life, our present life, our past life, karma, etc. It is an appropriate title for this amazing film!
Samsara is the much awaited follow up to Baraka, a movie that amazed me.
Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.
Expanding on the themes they developed in BARAKA (1992) and CHRONOS (1985), SAMSARA explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man's spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation. Through powerful images, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.
This film is so unique, beautiful, and inspiring. It does not hold back on any part. From militia to monks, from desert to forest, it is all there. Now, it is available on blu-ray for the best quality, color, and experience.
