samsara is a non-verbal film that i cant wait to see!  it is photographic art put to motion.  director ron fricke also created the visual stunners Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi (which has a great score by philip glass).  samsara was filmed in 25 countries and took 5 years to finish.  it will be released in late august and i'm super excited to see it when it's finally out in australia!

watch this trailer fullscreen!

from the website:

SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.  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.
