Baraka

by Justin
(Frankfort, KY, USA)

Baraka is a stunning film by Ron Fricke, released in 1992. It is not a typical film or documentary by Hollywood standards. It is more akin to what we now refer to "time lapse" movies -- a series of still photo frames shot over a length of time and sped up to simulate movement and set to a powerful soundtrack. Baraka opens with quiet scenes of a sunrise, indigenous tribes at prayer, and other calm, serene scenes. However, as the film progresses, we shift to other parts of the world, showing how people live and interact with one another and nature in busy cities and dense rainforests. I have never felt as moved by a movie as I have by this one. Every single frame of this film is beautifully shot and composed; however, more importantly, it showcases the beauty in our world and the way that we interact with it. From isolated tribes in remote countries to people in bustling cities, we are attracted to human contact and shared experiences. This film moves throughout the world demonstrating that all life is connected and that our actions have global consequences, whether we realize it or not. Depending on the translation, Baraka means “blessing” or “the essence of life.” Watch this film and you will have a new perspective on what a blessing life is and how there is so much beauty in this world, if we simply open our eyes and look at our daily interactions a little bit differently.
