The Spirit of Baraka is a reference site that celebrates films such as Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi and the people who made the films.

The web site has no official connection with any of the films listed.

It serves as a reference to the films and their creators.


In 1998, whilst living in Perth in Australia, a friend of mine suggested that I go with him to the Leederville Theatre to watch a film called Koyaanisqatsi.  I was intrigued by my friend's description of the film, but knew nothing of what to expect.

Whilst watching the long opening scene of the film, which is of the burning base of a space rocket during take off, I was not sure whether this was my kind of film.  However, as the film continued, evolving into the many scenes that make the film so powerful, I became sucked into the film.

By the end of the film I was engrossed, and wanted more.
My friend told me of Baraka, which we later watched on VHS.

Upon my return to the UK, where I live, I started to research the films.  At the time information was very difficult to find.  In 2001, as my findings increased I decided to create a web site to share the information and to celebrate the films. 


The web site currently contains details of any films that fit into the genre that the site celebrates.  Some of the films idea's vary greatly, but all of the films share the same underlying theme.  There are no actors, scripts or plots.  Every image is from the real world.


The site will continue to grow, including any films, old or new, that are bought to my attention.
