(International, 2011, 102 min. PG-13)
Filmed over nearly five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, and shot on seventy-millimetre film, Samsara transports us to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders. There is no dialogue, the striking images are accompanied by music.
