'The Power of a Dream....
Baraka makes the Earth and its inhabitants seem touchingly fragile.'
Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun Times
Baraka, an ancient Sufi word with forms in many languages, translates as a blessing, or as the breath or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds. A transcendently poetic tour of the globe that explores the sights and sounds of the human condition like nothing youve ever seen or felt before. These are the wonders of a world without words, viewed through man and natures own prisms of symmetry, savagery, harmony and chaos.
Baraka was shot in breathtaking IMAX 70mm format in 24 countries on 6 continents.
Baraka must be seen, felt and experienced to be understood.
