Samsara

Words, words and even more words. When I was trying to encourage my friends to go with me to see Samsara I was not very successful. Most people are very sceptical about documentary films without narration. 20 years ago Ron Fricke directed his wordless  documentary film Baraka and this year he takes us again for an amazing visual trip around the world accompanied by stunning music by Lisa Gerrard and Michael Stearns. Whereas Baraka is more focused on nature and different religious experiences, in Samsara Ron Fricke compares the beauty and power of nature and the achievements of past civilizations with the modern lifestyle of today. I really recommend this film – it does not happen very often that we are able to watch such a beautiful combination of pictures and music.
