Samsara Around the Globe – Magidson Films (USA)
BFC just completed one of our most challenging projects, a large format art documentary called Samsara Around the Globe. The film is non-verbal, showing stunning photography of the state of the planet today with images of people and landscapes, sacred sites, modern technology, ethnic ceremony and performance, architecture, and environmental destruction, as well as, beauty. BFC was able to gain permission to sensitive and restricted areas, at Kawah Ijen, East Java, and religious ceremonies at Karangasem, Bali. The shoot was a success with the crew able to capture perhaps some of the best footage of the film.
Samsara is directed by Ron Fricke, the same man behind the critically acclaimed Baraka (1992).
