    Some of that footage looks like it’s been taken from Ron Fricke’s Baraka, which is an absolutely amazing film that you should definitely see on the biggest screen you can find.

    Oooh, thank you, Dunc! I don’t do much from Great Big Story, because they are really bad about providing text, and rarely link to source material. I don’t usually have the time to go on a big ‘net hunt trying to track everything down, either.

    If you haven’t seen Baraka, you definitely should. I’m absolutely certain that you’d love it. I saw it in the cinema when it came out, and I’ve never found another film as profoundly affecting. After leaving, you could easily spot everybody else who’d just seen it, even many blocks away, because we were all stumbling around looking completely stunned. It’s one of the best films ever made, IMHO, which is quite something to say for a film with no plot and no dialogue.
