Default Ron Fricke's BARAKA

I was watching parts of this movie the other day upconverted and found the imagery mesmerizing - I really hope when Fricke's next 70mm opus SAMSARA gets theatrically released later in the year (in 70mm, 35mm and DLP no less!) we can see and hear 'Baraka' in it's best possible incarnation - HiDef Blu-ray.

Absolutely! Thanks for the tip about SAMSARA, I hadn't heard about that yet.

I was lucky enough to see BARAKA projected in 70mm about 5 or 6 times in Dayton, Ohio at the Neon Movies back when they actually were running on a curved Cinerama screen. It was stunning!

I've actually only seen BARAKA in 35mm when it had it's premier theatrical run at the Embassy Theater here in DC. The AFI Silver a few years back showed this in 70mm - which I of course missed

I will gladdly triple dip on this when they release the Blu-Ray.
