Visually Stunning First Trailer for Documentary 'Samsara' Shot Entirely on 70MM Film

The Collider:
File this one away in the “win” column in the argument for using film over digital. The breathtaking imagery in director Ron Fricke and writer Mark Magidson’s trailer for Samsara paints a vivid moving picture of our varied and colorful world, captured in 70mm film. The documentary (the most recent in a filmography that features Baraka and Chronos) is a visual journey across 25 different countries over the course of five years that features vibrant scenes that bridge humanity and nature and is accompanied by a dynamic score.

Hit the jump to see the trailer and read the synopsis for Samsara, which opens in theaters this August.
