Baraka – Amazing View of the WORLD

October 20, 2009 Art, Film, Living, World No Comments

LH introduced me to Baraka, a 1992 film directed by Ron Fricke. There is no narrative, and some would say there is no plot. Nevertheless, it is captivating and enlightening. Shot in 24 countries, it displays culture from different perspectives. You could think of it as the highlights of 152 (the number of locations featured) episodes of National Geographic, condensed into 104 minutes. It is definitely not a film in the traditional sense, and to thoroughly enjoy it, you have to suspend judgment and take it all in with an open mind.

“It’s not where you are that’s important, it’s what’s there.”

All of it can be viewed on Youtube in 10-minute segments, but due to some copyrights, not all have audio. In my opinion, it’s worth purchasing and viewing this properly on a big screen with the sound all the way up.
