Samsara by Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson

Samsara is a trip into the huge scale of the world and the effect the human race has had and is having on it. The beautifully shot images range from the macro to the micro: vast desert captured using time lapse to show the ephemeral art the sun and moon make as the skies darken and lighten overhead; the grains of sand sprinkled by monks to make an intricately beautiful picture of the endless cycle of birth and death. This theme is present throughout the film, unaccompanied by dialogue or descriptive text. The cinematography and sounds tell the stories.
