SAMSARA, 2011, Magidson Films. Filmed over a period of five years and shot in 25 countries on glorious 70mm, the new meditative documentary from Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson (BARAKA, KOYAANISQATSI) transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations, encouraging interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern. The title is inspired by the Sanskrit word that means “the ever-turning wheel of life.” [DCP] Discussion following with director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson, schedules permitting. This screening is for American Cinematheque members only. Please see our website for info on becoming a member. SAMSARA opens on August 31 at the Landmark.
