Baraka is an ancient Sufi word with forms in many languages. It is simply translated as a blessing, or the breath or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds. Baraka, the epic non-verbal film, tells the story of the Earth's evolution, man's diversity and interconnection, and his impact on the planet. According to the director, Ron Fricke, "it is a journey of rediscovery that plunges into nature, history, the human spirit, and finally into the realms of the infinite." The film was shot in 70mm in 24 countries, in such diverse locales as Brazil, Nepal, Cambodia, Kuwait, India, Tanzania and Iran.
