Samsara at the Coral Gables Art Cinema

From September 21 through October 4, 2012.

altPrepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience with Samsara, starting its exclusive Miami premiere this September. Samsara is an ambitious tour de force that transports viewers to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders as it searches for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.

Filmed over a period of almost five years in twenty-five countries, and in 70mm, Samsara allows viewers to make their own interpretations, by using only images and music without dialogue or narration. Sans main characters or a traditional storyline, it was important for filmmakes Fricke and Magidson to shoot Samsara using high quality images that captured every minute detail and the rich texture of its subject (Fricke was also the cinematographer on the groundbreaking Koyaanisqatsi). By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, the film subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, exploring the mundane and the miraculous, the ancient and the modern, illuminating the links between humanity and the rest of nature. 

“Samsara offers some of the most rapturous images in recent cinema, along with an intriguing aesthetic and philosophical puzzle. You’ll be moved, amazed, mystified…a grand artistic gesture and a communal experience.” – Salon
