Samsara

£9.99

Product description

Both discs in very good condition, with small and light marks only
Ron Fricke directs this kaleidoscopic visual essay, a follow-up to his 1992 film 'Baraka'. Shot over five years and five continents, the film takes in sweeping landscapes, natural wonders, sacred places and disaster zones, as well as time-lapse sequences of nature and the night sky, footage of the mass production of food and vast landfill sites. The juxtaposition of images drawn from ancient religion, modern technology and the natural world serves to create an epic and cyclical wordless commentary on human experience that reflects the film's title, a Sanskrit word describing the eternal cycle of life, death and rebirth.
