Samsara Blu-ray

Posted December 5, 2012 05:04 PM by Webmaster

MPI Media GroupMPI 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.

Special Features:
  • Trailers
  • Internet Teaser
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • Additional Bonus...

Hideous cover for a Gorgeous Movie.

How about some more quotes, more golden banners and even more images photoshopped in?
Why stop now?!?

Baraka has some awful cover art as well, ironic considering the material included is some of the most beautiful images ever caught on film.

hmmm, can we expect 96kHz audio like the 'Chronos' and 'Baraka' blurays? I'm assuming this will be released in 7.1 as it was released in the theaters as such.

Ditto on the cover art. Looks like a magazine ad. Otherwise, can't wait to get this!

Agree on the cover. Nevertheless, this is a day one purchase. Loved Baraka, and can't wait to see this.

^ the hidef scan was 8K, but the film went out to theaters in 4K DCP and 35mm

^ As above, the movie was shot on 5-Perf 65mm; scanned in 8K and then archived.

From that 8K master they've made a 4K DCP Reduction, a 35mm Film Reduction & in this case a 1080p BD Reduction.

Surprisingly, they haven't made any 70mm blow ups for archival..?

Shooting/scanning at higher resolutions and then reducing does yield superior results though.

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.
