Samsara

Directed by Ron Fricke

U.S.A., 2011

What is humanity’s relation to the world and to itself? What is humanity’s legacy culturally, spiritually, architecturally, politically and how has that legacy changed throughout the ages? There is no single answer to any of those questions, but the exercise of pondering on the matter should provide enough food for thought to last a life time and even then some. They are grand scale queries which require exhaustive research and documentation, practices which historians, philosophers and other such professionals devote their lives to. Documentary film is ripe for capturing images and thoughts which can assist us in coming to terms with ourselves. Acclaimed director Ron Fricke, a filmmaker whose output is better appreciated for its quality rather than its quantity, returns after a prolonged absence, one that be explained by the fact that he was working diligently on Samsara.
