Berlin Film Festival award winner Lois Patiño’s assured third feature transports us to magical places in Laos and Zanzibar, where the visible and the invisible merge.
Patiño’s film envelops us in a work of collective meditation and cinematic reincarnation. We observe the daily rituals of a Buddhist temple in Laos and a seaweed farm in Zanzibar, captured on 16mm with an ethnographic eye (and ear) for detail. Infused with sonic wonders, the spiritual becomes profoundly sensorial; at one point we’re even invited to enjoy Samsara’s uniquely transformative spaces with our eyes closed. Transcendental.
