10 Of The Best Documentary Films about Africa

Written by Mark Rausch


6. Samsara (2011)

You need to see this beautiful film. From the Mursi tribe of Ethiopia to Turkey to the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, this guided meditation on Eastern philosophy and the cycle of birth, life, and death, is brilliantly captured in sweeping 70 millimeter film, with montages of wordless images which swoop in and out of beautiful and unfortunate settings all over the world. It’s all congealed together as one big message of impermanence and hope.
