Synopsis:
Taking its' title from an ancient Middle Eastern word, Baraka means 'a blessing', or 'breath of life'. A visually stunning film that was shot over 13 months in 24 countries, Baraka is an overwhelming experience that spans the geographical, cultural and social diversity of our changing planet. Set to an atmospheric soundtrack inspired by various rituals and nature itself; the film captures the very essence of man's relationship with the earth, both harmonious and catastrophic. Baraka is a journey of rediscovery. It is the power, the beauty and the rage of life itself. It is the world we live in.

Impressive - Baraka review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
16/02/2006

The impressive imagery and the musical underpinning form what I consider the most unbelievable review of human activity on the planet in existence. Thought-provoking and a pleasure to watch.

Art but not plot - Baraka review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
23/12/2015

This film compiles beautiful and amazing shots of religion, dance and natural wonder. However, there is no plot, no talking, and rather droning sound, so I found the effect rather likely a slightly random and rather similar to a slightly "New Age" and extended collection of exotic holiday videos thrown together. If you are keen on the art then this could carry you through the film, but if you are looking for any plot, or even information on what you are seeing, then you won't find it here.
