This is something I know a lot of ATSers will want to see. At only 20 minutes in my mind is already blown as I witness how Tibetan monks make
elaborate art works with the dust scraped from tusks. Shot in 25 countries over a 5 year period, the film has no dialogue, the score - made from a
collaboration of earthly and tribal sounds gives the narrative. And it's very well filmed. It's out on DVD now and whatever so it's out there.
Samsara is a Tibetan word that means "The ever turning wheel of life", a concept both intimate and vast, the perfect subject for filmmakers Ron
Fricke and Mark Magidson whose previous collaborations include Chronos and Baraka. "Samsara" takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation that
will transform viewers in countries around the world, as they are swept along a journey of the soul. 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.
