eOne and Hopscotch Films have acquired Australian and New Zealand rights to Samsara, the follow-up to Baraka. Filmed over a period of five years in 25 countries on five continents and shot on 70mm film, Samsara reunites director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson. They teamed on Baraka and Chronos. Samsara depicts the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders and by dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, the film veers from the traditional documentary. eOne Canada already bought rights to the film in Canada and will release it in the fall. Oscilloscope releases the film August 24 in the U.S.
