Collection of two Ron Fricke films. In 'Samsara' (2011), we are shown sweeping landscapes, natural wonders, sacred places and disaster zones, as well as time-lapse sequences of nature and the night sky, footage of the mass production of food and vast landfill sites.
The juxtaposition of images drawn from ancient religion, modern technology and the natural world serves to create an epic and cyclical wordless commentary on human experience that reflects the film's title, a Sanskrit word describing the eternal cycle of life, death and rebirth.
In 'Baraka' (1992), we are shown images which help explore man's relationship with nature.
Covering the ancient and the modern, the technological and the natural, the film uses music and images to chart the cycle of life and modern man's destructive relation to the planet.
