Baraka

(1993 US, Dir Ron Fricke, 1hr 45min)

From Nepal to Kenya, from Australia to Brazil, people try to cope with the changes that have altered their landscape, crowding them together and speeding up daily life. The film shows us these alienated people, but also images of traditions — whirling dervishes and Tibetan monks — that offer different, peaceful ways of existence. Shot in 70mm in 24 countries, this awesome musical and visual montage in the tradition of Koyaanisqatsi expresses the global existence of nature and man in the broadest sensory terms.
