This is a past event.


When: Sat., Aug. 29 2015
Shot entirely on 70mm film, 2011's Samsara places a heavy emphasis on visuals. Koyaanisqatsi cinematographer directed the movie, which was shot in 25 different countries over the course of a five-year span. The title comes from a Sanskirt word for "the ever-turning wheel of life." The movie certainly lives up to its title as it includes images of babies being baptized and worshippers gathering for prayer. There's no dialogue to the movie but there doesn't need to be. Its striking images speak for themselves. A 4K version of the movie screens tonight at 9:40 and tomorrow night at 8:50 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
