There never was a more perfectly photographed, perfectly soundtracked film than Samsara, by Ron Fricke.
When the human species goes extinct, and another intelligence arises in the distant future, will humans have left any trace behind of who we were, of what it was like to share our planet for this brief moment?
I would choose this film as the record of humanity, the travelogue of the planet’s power, diversity, and sublime richness and beauty.
All the weirdness and wonder of our human condition and this, our habitat, is expertly captured by this masterwork of cinematic art and technology and inspired musical accompaniment. Not a single spoken word of dialogue or narration interrupts the reverie, which makes it an even more universally accessible experience.
