A World Beyond Words.
A film by Ron Fricke.
Baraka, an ancient Sufi word with forms in many languages, translates as a blessng, or as the breath or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds. A transcendently poetic tour of the globe, Baraka was shot in breattaking 70mm in 24 countries on six continents.
Set to the life affirming rhythms of varied religous rituals and nature's own raw beat, Baraka is a visualization of the interconnectedness humans share with the earth. Spanning such diverse locales as China, Brazil, Kuwait and major U.S. and European sites, among other, Baraka captures not only the harmony, but also the calamity that humans and nature have visited upon the earth. However, mere words do not do the film justice - Baraka must be seen, felt and experienced to be understood.
