This weeks film in review is Baraka. A silent film with the most stunning imagery from around the world you will ever see. It has been said that it has no plot, however I would argue that it most definatly does! It is a cross cultural comparrison of lives and traditions around the world, and how these different societies view the world around them. It will make you want to travel, I promise! Here is a clip from the theatrical trailer:
I first saw this film when I was 21 years old and I vowed right then and there that I would go to Bali...and nearly ten years later I did! The film will take you to Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Equador, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonessia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kuait, Nepal, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Tzanzania, Thailand, Turkey and the United States. It is an older film now so if you can get your hands on a digitally remastered version I would highly reccomend it!
