Watch: Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson Discuss “Samsara” on DocTalk
If you still haven’t had the opportunity yet to see Samsara on the big screen, you have to get on that. As I’m quoted as saying in ads for the documentary, it’s “the year’s best movie to see in a theater.” And while it’s in pretty wide release already, about 25 new locations will be showing it over the next week.
To help convince you, I’m sharing the DocTalk segment featuring director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson above. Along with some of the spectacular shots from the film, you can hear them talking of how they avoid montage-created messages through fluid editing, how they cut the film without thinking of the music, how they shot the portraits, what they like about time-lapse and more. It’s a lot of information for such a short video.
