A ‘Samsara’ trailer was recently released from director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson that follows the journey of filmmakers shooting on 70mm film over the span of five years and shot in over 25 countries.

From the creators of Baraka (1992) and Chronos (1985), comes ‘Samsara,' a term derived from the Sankrit word "the ever turning wheel of life." This new film takes you on the journey around the world and connects you to all different forms of life that most viewers do not always get a chance to see. Created through the art of filming on 70mm film with standard films rates to capture the most breathtaking shots and the use of time-lapse photography, it is easy to see how this is going to be another brillant film to add to the already stunning body of work that these two have released.
