Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA explores the wonders of the world from sacred grounds to industrial sites, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man s spirituality and the human experience. Photographed entirely in 70mm and transferred to 4K digital projection format, SAMSARA s mesmerizing images of unprecedented clarity illuminate the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA is a guided meditation on the current of interconnection that runs through all of our lives.
Filmed over five years, in locations in 25 countries, it is the kind of experience you simply sink into. --Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
SAMSARA stares at Asian temples, African tribesmen, and chickens bound for slaughter with the same blank eye. --Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
The world SAMSARA gives us is strange and beautiful, and in places disturbing, but it also seems manageable, even in its vastness, and perhaps too easily consumed through beautiful images. --A.O. Scott, New York Times
