Back in like ’97 or ’98 my friend Brad Stanfill showed me one of the most beautiful and powerful documentaries I’ve ever seen called Baraka by Ron Fricke.
Earlier this year a clip started circulating around the net and I was reminded of its brilliance.
As it turns out, that clip is from a film called Samsara, also made by Ron Fricke and shot over 5 years in 25 countries that explores the beauty and mystery of the world and humanity.
Anyway here is one small slice of the film that examines our food supply chain.
This clip contains no words, and no words can describe it.
Make sure you watch it all the way to the end. It’s only 6 minutes.
If at any point you feel a strong need to stop watching, don’t, just skip ahead to 4:30.
Afterward I would really like to know your thoughts about it.
