Described as a ‘transformative sensorial journey’ by Sight & Sound and included in The Guardian’s top films to watch this 2024, SAMSARA brings audiences a truly transcendental experience as the film takes us from the temples of Laos to the beaches of Zanzibar to witness the journey of life and the afterlife.
Like a conversation held on the border between one lifetime and the next, Samsara is a meditation on the journeys we take upon the wheel of life, and continues Patiño’s exploration of the moving image, expanding it as an immersive experience. In the same vein as Apichatpong Weerasethakul, the cycle of life and reincarnation acquiesce with the experience of watching.
Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Berlin Film Festival.
SAMSARA is coming to select cinemas from 26 January and exclusively on Curzon Home Cinema.
