A brief, yet no less stunning trailer has landed for his upcoming "Samsara," and it proudly boasts the fact that it was shot in 70mm. And with good reason. This teaser for the film is not short on images that would make Terrence Malick weep, in a film that evocatively explores links between humanity and nature, and plain awe within our world. Our own Katie Walsh reviewed the film earlier this year at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and had nothing but praise: "The film itself is a rare artifact, due to the technical ability and will the filmmakers had to have to capture these images. You can't simply go out and recreate it. And while one can discuss the technical prowess of these shocking and beautiful images, it doesn't do justice to the spiritual cinematic power of this work. Scenes of worshippers at Mecca, or the moon traveling across a desert sky, or workers in a chicken factory are unlike anything you will ever see, yes, and they are visually dazzling, but that does not speak to the emotional power imbued within each frame. Fricke knows that for all of his computerized camera movements and time-lapse photography, sometimes resting on a close up of a Filipino inmate's eyes, a young African mother and child, or the single tear of a geisha slipping down her cheek is more emotionally powerful than anything technologically dazzling."
So in short, do what you can see this on the big screen. Oscilloscope Laboratories will release "Samsara" into theaters on August 24th. Watch below or in HD at Apple.
