Baraka reaches past language, nationality, politics or religion. Shot by director Ron Fricke on sweeping 70mm film in 25 countries, it brings together stunning cinematography to capture snapshots of global humanity. It has no narrative or voice-over and includes a range of themes and photographic styles but uses just breathtaking shots from around the world to show the beauty and destruction of nature and humans.

…bar-raising visuals … yielding an experience much like living, breathing pages out of National Geographic.

There just aren’t enough superlatives to discuss the visual power and prestige of this presentation.
