Special 70mm screening
Dir. Ron Fricke. 1992, 96 mins. Magnificently photographed in 24 countries on six continents, Baraka is described by its director as “a guided meditation on humanity,” viewing the wonders of a world, without words, through man’s and nature’s prisms of symmetry, savagery, harmony, and chaos. This rare screening of the film in 70mm will be preceded by a short preview of Fricke’s new film, Samsara, which is being released this summer by Oscilloscope Laboratories, and by the Robert Gardner short It Could Be Good, It Could Be Bad (1997, 6 mins.), which captures a breathtaking flight over the Chilean Andes.
Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
