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.
BARAKA: A challenge, a warning, a gift, a blessing. In the ancient Sufi language, BARAKA translates as ‘the thread that weaves life together’. In the pantheon of modern cinema, it remains one of the most unique and acclaimed motion picture events of our time. Shot in breathtaking 70mm in 24 countries on six continents, BARAKA is a transcendent global tour that explores the sights and sounds of the human condition like nothing you’ve ever seen or felt before. These are the wonders of a world without words, viewed through man and nature’s own prisms of symmetry, savagery. chaos and harmony.

Eye opening, but random. Who decides what is included and what isn't? Some weird parts - why are they so interested in staring down people? Not sure what to say. Interesting to watch once. Makes curious - thought provoking. But what is it?
Samsara and Baraka are dizzying visual essays covering much of the planet. The framing is beautiful and subjects are fascinating. These are two of my favourite documentaries, just don't expect a traditional narrative structure!
Wonderful documentaries with the best picture and audio quality ( 96kHz, 24-bit ). Ron Fricke´s best works have been shot in 24 and 25 countries respectively. Highly recommended purchase.
I remember watching Baraka in 90's but this version is totally stunning. Samsara is also great. You can't miss it, not for that price.
Two audio-visually stunning documentaries with important message. This is a bargain!
