Baraka World View

Its very rare that we write about movies, the only other movie I wrote about was waking life. Perhaps you watched that movie and really enjoyed it, or did not as you found it rather complex. But here’s a movie that everyone needs to watch, shot in 69 places in 24 countries from 6 continents.

What is Baraka?

BarakaBaraka has a several meanings around the world, similar, except in Turkish where it means barracks.

Baraka, also berakhah, in Judaism, a blessing usually recited during a ceremony, in Islam and Arab-influenced languages, meaning spiritual wisdom and blessing transmitted from God.

“Baraka”, a rarely used French slang term for luck, derived from the Arabic word and ‘Blessing’ in Kiswahili. Baraka seems to be a quite a well used word that breaks the boundaries of language.

According to the spirit of Baraka, a site dedicated to the movie Baraka as well as other movies like it, “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.”

What can you Expect?

Apart from spectacular sunsets, sunrises, nature, people, cities and life existent at this moment around the world on a 70mm film that will completely blow you away and make you question your reality and things you have never scene from a top level perspective, opening up your mind to a world that is larger than just you and me.

There are moments in the film, where we as humans can we be seen just as ants, our way of life and the harm that we as the most intelligent uncompassionate species on earth you will be slapped hard on your face by the attempt this movie makes to get you out of your slumber.

If you eat chickens and eggs there’s something special for you there. I am a non vegetarian and I just had some chicken for lunch, this movie will make you think it made me think hard as well.

Here’s a clip from one of my favorite sequences from the movie, take a look at it. Its the Kecak performed in front of Gunung Kawi, Tampaksiring, Bali Island, I seem to notice a change in body colours of the people who lay down also get astonished by the synchronization.

Please share, it really helps! :) <3
