(It is a FREE Cultural Event ! )
Samsara is a Sanskrit word meaning “the ever turning wheel of life”. This film was captured over the period of five years in twenty-five countries, entirely on 70mm film. Directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, Samsara follows in the steps of Baraka, Chronos, and Koyaanisqatsi, displaying the utmost elegance in a stunning visual display! When I saw this film I was in awe and felt compelled to share the experience. In order to properly experience Samsara you need a legit theater with a real sound system, not a macbook 17″ or a projector. I spoke with the booking department at the DiGiorgio Center and requested the use of Dina’s Place Theater, then decided to take it a step further and request consideration for Samsara to be a Global Cultural Event (free of course). With the help of Stacey Davidson we received approval for the event and cultural event status. It is our desire to include professors, students, and faculty from across campus and create an organic forum and discuss the film briefly afterwards! If you are curious, you should come! I don’t believe you will be disappointed. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a film series hosted by students and faculty, why not!
