Samsara Press Release
Magidson Films - 20 June 2007

from the creators of Koyaanisqatsi, Chronos, and Baraka news of their next film, Samsara.

Samsara is a Tibetan word that means “the ever turning wheel of life, a concept both intimate and vast, obvious and oblique, the perfect subject for filmmakers Mark Magidson and Ron Fricke who have awed us with exquisite images of the mundane; filmmakers with an uncanny ability to reveal the elusive current of interconnection that runs through the Universe and our lives.

Both philosophically and technically, Samsara will build on the team’s earlier work. Expanding on the themes of interconnection and transcendence which they developed in Baraka (1992), Samsara will focus on the cycle of Birth, Death and Rebirth, from the perspectives of many cultures. Neither a traditional documentary, nor a travelogue, Samsara will take the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation that will transform viewers in countries around the world, as they are swept along on a journey of the soul. Through powerful images, the film will illuminate the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet. Samsara will be part of a 21st Century mythology, revealing parts of our imperiled planet never before photographed. It will combine original and indigenous music with dance as well as other contemporary art forms. . . .

After the fantastic and time proven response to Baraka . . . Magidson and Fricke are confident that world audiences are ready for films with a life-affirming message.

Thanks for posting this GR- I'm definitely going to look these films up. This kind of thing shouuld be at every video store instead of the commercialized sexed and violent crap they pump out at us, like we can't think positive thoughts, only aggressive ones.

What a Whirreled we spin in! :roll: :compress: :shaking:

Completely sane world
madness the only freedom

An ability to see both sides of a question
one of the marks of a mature mind

People don't choose to be dishonest
the choice chooses them

Now I know how Kusinich feels.
