Samsara – The Movie

SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.

    Did you see it?

  2. Yes, I saw it and did enjoy it in a quiet sort of way. Lots of lovely visuals and a wonderful lack of commentary and words. I would recommend it – though I am not, in truth, terribly critical when it comes to films, as I don’t feel qualified to make judgements. I’m usually just relieved when there is no violence!
