Samsara...the movie

   I'm taking a break from my PhotoTao cards today to tell you about a film I saw on Sunday that was awe inspiring.  It had such an impact on me that I feel compelled to share it with you.  If you read this blog then the photograph is important to you...you understand the power of the visual image to communicate emotion and to stimulate deep reflection and meaningful contemplation.  This film does all that in a superb way.

   Samsara is not your ordinary documentary.  There is no verbal narration just exquisite music to accompany the stunning imagery.  It is an emotional roller coaster that will have you high with ecstatic beauty one moment and then plunging to gut wrenching despair the next.  Without words, the film makers allow you to form your own associations, balance the subtle juxtapositions and come to your own conclusions.  If you allow yourself to be drawn into the experience I assure you, you'll never look at the world in the same way again.  If there is the perfect film for contemplative photographers, this must be it.  See it if you can. The link below will take you to their website to view a trailer and to find a theater near you.  Give yourself the gift of seeing this film...
