MPI Home Video have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray Ron Fricke's Samsara (2011). Samsara is one of only a handful of feature films, including its predecessor Baraka, to be shot in the 70mm format in the last forty years. Street date is January 8th.
Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, Samsara explores the wonders of the world from sacred grounds to industrial sites, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man's spirituality and the human experience. Photographed entirely in 70mm and transferred to 4K digital projection format, Samsara's mesmerizing images of unprecedented clarity illuminate the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, Samsara is a guided meditation on the current of interconnection that runs through all of our lives.
Cover's pretty bad, but I guess it matches Baraka's, so they'll clearly look more like companion pieces. I would've liked to see Oscilloscope release this, but MPI is pretty good at their job(I own their releases of Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Enter the Void and Baraka, and they did a great job on all of those)
Should look great. Saw this in 4K and was blown away.
