My friend Charlie introduced me to this movie a few years ago. I had no idea that it was available online. I have the DVD of course but didn't realize there was an immediate means in which to share the movie with you - my friends. The movie is absolutely stunning. If you have time - sit back and take a look at this incredibly moving and spiritual film. It's insane.
The site spiritofbaraka.com had this to say - "Baraka is an incredible nonverbal film containing images of 24 countries from 6 continents, created by Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, with music from Michael Stearns and others. The film has no plot, contains no actors and has no script. Instead, high quality 70mm images show some of the best, and worse, parts of nature and human life. Timelapse is used heavily to show everyday life from a different perspective. Baraka is often considered a spiritual film.
Baraka is an ancient Sufi word, which can be translated as "a blessing, or as the breath, or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds." For many people Baraka is the definitive film in this style. Breathtaking shots from around the world show the beauty and destruction of nature and humans. Coupled with an incredible soundtrack including on site recordings of The Monks Of The Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastery."
