Baraka

4

Shot during 13 months in 24 countries, Baraka is intended to be a non-verbal meditation upon "man's relationship to the eternal", according to the bonus material included on this disc. To this end, director Ron Fricke gets the most from the expensive 70mm format by allowing the camera to linger over some beautiful scenes of both human and natural life. A suitably ethereal soundtrack completes the intended atmosphere of deep spirituality.
