Just what is a non-verbal documentary anyway?
If you appreciated the silent visual storytelling of “The Artist” or the cinematic majesty of Terrence Malick‘s nature cinematography in “The Tree of Life,” or, if you’re a fan of the cult 1992 documentary “Baraka,” you’ll be a fan of “Samsara,” the latest effort from that film’s director, Ron Fricke.
Using the Tibetan word for “the ever turning wheel of life” as its title, the film chronicles the birth, life, death, destruction and rebirth cycles that occur on our planet in ways big and small.
Shot on 70mm film, over a period of four years in locations scattered across the globe, the footage captured by Fricke is unlike anything you will ever see.
Fricke’s signature and innovative use of camera movement over time-lapse photography is visually breathtaking, interspersed with stunning slow motion film-portraits of various subjects along the journey.
It has a rhythm and flow that ebbs like the tides, and a score that pulsates with a human heartbeat
While “Samsara” travels the globe from Tibetan monks, to African tribesman, to Chinese factory workers, to Los Angeles’ tangled web of freeways, to the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, and more, it maintains the themes of life and death, permanence and impermanence and the flow and rhythm of our world’s energy throughout.
