I saw Baraka, (1992, Ron Fricke), this weekend on my large screen/surround sound system. I recommend it for classroom use, after having been told by Alberto Pï¿½gola that he has been using it in his classes at the Catholic University in Montevideo. It can be shown in 20 minute segments during a series of classes. Use good speakers. With no words at all, it carries the storyline and a wordless philosophy. The site says: 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.”
Hope you enjoy the visual journey.
