Director and cinematographer Ron Ficke (Koyaanisqatsi, Baraka) has been hard at work on Samsara for 5 years. The entire film is shot in stunning 70mm. It is a film that relies completely on its visual impact and cinematographic juxtaposition, as there isn't any dialogue.
Putting stunning sequences near each other creates a visual narrative, an essay that uses vision, motion, color and light as its sentences, nouns, verbs and phrases. The trailer (below) has be pretty excited for the theatrical release.
Samsara is the Sanskrit word for "continuous flow" but often refers to the never ending cycle of life-death-rebirth, physical and figurative, so often thought through in Hinduism and Buddhism.
