RASA YATRA - a film by Param Tomanec

Posted by Darren on 08 October 2012


Update: The European Premiere of Rasa Yatra will be held in Prague.  It will open the 10th Indian Film Festival on 15th October, 6:30PM in Kino Svetozor.

RASA YATRA is a film by Param Tomanec, (50mins) photographed in India inspired by Baraka and Qatsi series.

"RASA YATRA evokes the beauty of pilgrimage and explores the essence of devotion in Hindu culture through non-linear narrative. Rasa is Sanskrit for 'juice' or 'taste', and it can also mean 'dance'. Yatra means 'journey', suggesting a joyful inner expedition, beyond the confines of routine and conceptual conventions. Photographed over a period of four years, RASA YATRA takes the viewer on a meditative journey from the majestic Himalayan mountains into Vrindavana, the spiritual heart of India. For the receptive viewer, RASA YATRA becomes a pilgrimage rather than a mere depiction of one."Read more >>>

UK Premiere of Samsara Brief Report

Last updated by Darren on 22 August 2012

Mark & Ron

Monday 20th August 2012 saw the UK Premiere of Samsara at The Soho Hotel in London.

Mark Magidson and Ron Fricke were in attendance.  It was a intimate showing.  Mark and Ron gave a nice Q&A session afterwards.

The SpiritOfBaraka competition winners Kirsten and Julius loved seeing Baraka.  Julius hadn't seen Baraka, and was literally speechless after seeing Samsara.

A massive thank you to everyone at Arrow Films for hosting the premiere, and accommodating our competition winners.

This was my 4th time of seeing Samsara, and I love it more every time that I see it.  It truly is the successor to Baraka than I think we have all hoped and longed for.

Word wide showings are soon at start, so check the showing lists below and go and see Samsara!Read more >>>
