Shot over five years in 25 countries around the world (and expanding on the themes they developed in Baraka) Samsara explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of humanity's spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, Samsara takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation.
Samsara will be projected using a state-of-the-art Sony SRX-R320 projector equipped with three Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD™) devices; which provide an amazing resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels (H x V) - more than four times the resolution of full HDTV (1920 x 1080), and achieving a high contrast ratio of more than 2000:1.
Band Pro’s founder, Amnon Band noted: “For our 30th anniversary, we wanted to do something really special to thank everyone for their support. Samsara was shot on 65mm film and cut digitally for 4K projection. It’s a great way to celebrate Band Pro Film & Digital with our friends in the industry.”
Since its release in 2011, Samsara has only been shown twice in Los Angeles in 4K projection. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience it for yourself.
Seating is limited and early attendance is strongly encouraged. See the Samsara trailer here:
