Eco-Film Night #3 - Baraka: A World Beyond Words
This Saturday we'll be celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving by showing the film "Baraka." "Baraka" is a Sufi word meaning "a blessing, or the breath, or the essence of life, from which the evolutionary process unfolds." In Islam generally, it is "a quality or force emanating originally from Allah but capable of transmission to objects or to human beings." In Judaism, it is a ceremonial blessing. In Swahili, it means "blessing."
"Baraka" employs neither words, actors, nor plot. Instead, incredible, thought-provoking images from around the world show the beauty and chaos generated by nature and humans. Filmed at 152 locations in 24 countries, Baraka contains some images that you'll recognize, and many you won't, but will change the way you think
