THE BIG PICTURE: 70MM AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE

BARAKA
BARAKA
1992, Magidson Films, 96 min, USA, Dir: Ron Fricke

If you have never seen BARAKA, one of the Cinematheque’s favorite movies, this is another chance to experience one of the most visually awesome films ever made. Inspired by the Sufi word meaning "breath of life," BARAKA is a mind-expanding, spiritual journey around the globe (shot in 24 countries on five continents), from director-cinematographer Ron Fricke (who photographed the earlier KOYAANISQATSI) and producer Mark Magidson (the Imax film CHRONOS). Filmed entirely without dialogue in a stunning cascade of crystalline, time-lapse 70mm images, BARAKA is quite simply breathtaking. "Smashingly edited, superbly scored … speaks volumes about the planet without uttering a single word." - Suzan Ayscough, Variety.
