Director: Ron Fricke
Producer: Mark Magidson
Genre: Documentary / World Cinema

Language: English / None

A journey of the soul – beautiful, haunting, and mystical.

Samsara is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life.” Filmed over nearly five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, Samsara transform viewers through powerful images pristinely photographed in 70mm and a dynamic music score. The film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of the nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.

Expanding on the themes developed in Baraka (1992) and Chronos (1985), Samsara explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man’s spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, Samsara takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation.

Surviving Progress (2011)

Posted in Documentary, Philosophy, Science, World Cinema with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by SiNgUlIbRiUm

Director: Mathieu Roy, Harold Crooks
Producer: Martin Scorsese
Genre: Documentary
Country: Canada
Language: English / Portuguese / AR / PT / EN subtitles

Humanity’s ascent is often measured by the speed of progress. But what if progress is actually spiraling us downwards, towards collapse?

Documentary telling the double-edged story of the grave risks we pose to our own survival in the name of progress. With rich imagery the film connects financial collapse, growing inequality and global oligarchy with the sustainability of mankind itself. The film explores how we are repeatedly destroyed by ‘progress traps’ – alluring technologies which serve immediate need but rob us of our long term future. Featuring contributions from those at the forefront of evolutionary thinking such as Stephen Hawking and economic historian Michael Hudson. With Martin Scorsese as executive producer, the film leaves us with a challenge – to prove that civilization and survival is not the biggest progress trap of them all.
