Their follow-up documentary, 5 years in the making. Shot entirely on 70mm film.

Samsara takes the form of a guided meditation that will transform viewers as they are swept along a journey of the soul. Through powerful images photographed in 70mm and a dynamic music score, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of the nature.

Great! The first all 65mm production in years! Are there any theaters left that still have a working 70mm projector?

Very few. It's my understanding that the plan is to distribute this movie exclusively in 4k digital. I saw it in 4k at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and it was stunning.

If you like Baraka (and I do), the movie is basically more of the same. A little preachy in a couple of places (for example, a scene inside a food processing plant immediately cuts to time-lapse footage of obese people eating fast food), but those are pretty rare. It's ravishing to look at.
