Hello all, film club will be here before we know it. This month, we will be meeting on Thursday, April 21 in the big room upstairs, at 6:15pm.
This month we will be watching the film Baraka, directed by Ron Fricke. The film was made in 1992 and is a non-narrative film. What this means is that the film follows no particular story, and contains no dialogue. The film is more of a visual documentary that takes the viewer on a journey across different cultures and locations, to be specific, 152 locations spread out over 24 different countries. This film was the first film in over 20 years to be filmed in the 70mm Tod-AO format (technically filmed on 65mm then printed on 70mm), a format that allows for extreme widescreen film format. The result is a "journey beyond words" that will leave you awe-struck. You will not want to miss this one-of-kind film experience.
