Shot in 25 countries on six continents, the film captures a series of stunningly photographed scenes that capture what director Ron Fricke calls "a guided mediation on humanity." Critic Roger Ebert summed up his appreciation of the work as follows: “If man sends another Voyager to the distant stars and it can carry only one film on board, that film might be Baraka.

Originally released in 1992, Baraka was the first film in over twenty years to be photographed in the 70mm Todd-AO format, and the first film ever to be restored and scanned at 8K resolution.

Band Pro President & CEO Amnon Band commented: “As you know, last year we screened Samsara in 4K at Cine Gear.  The response was huge, and we wanted this year to be just as amazing.  Baraka is a film that deserves to be projected and appreciated on the big screen.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience BARAKA in its full and original 70mm glory.

Please note that seating is extremely limited and early attendance is strongly encouraged.
