A documentary exploring our planet from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man’s spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional film nor a travelogue, it takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation.
Samsara is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever-turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.
Shot over a period of five years and in twenty-five countries, the video transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and earth’s natural wonders.
Using powerful images, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.
