Samsara

Samsara

In the temples of Laos, teenage monks befriend a boy who’s accompanying a soul in transit from one body to another through the bardo. A luminous and sonorous journey leads to reincarnation on the beaches of Zanzibar, where groups of women work in seaweed farms. Samsara is an extraordinary and immersive cinema experience that the viewer is asked to lean into, at one point with eyes shut. Boasting mesmerising visuals, the highly immersive and meditative film by artist and director Lois Patiño is a masterfully-crafted, critically-acclaimed contemplation on the Buddhist cycle of life.
