Ron Fricke's long awaited follow up to
new 65mm production, titled "Samsara" is to premiere in Canada, September 11, 2011 during the
Toronto International Film Festival. "Samsara" is the first film which has been filmed entirely on high
resolution 65mm film since Kenneth Branagh's
in 1996. Most of "Samsara" has
been filmed with Panavision's System 65.
Toronto International Film Festival has announced the world-premiere on
web site, and hopefully that will create a lot of buzz for the fans of
Ron Fricke and 70mm fans alike.
World-premiered in Canada at the Montreal World Film Festival, 30. August

Producer Mark Magidson is quoted saying:|
"After 4 1/2 years in production it is indeed great to finally be able to
get the film out into the world."
Indeed, it has been a long wait for many, including the director Ron Fricke,
who sent an outline
of "Samsara" to in70mm.com/The 70mm Newsletter not long after the
release of "Baraka" - nearly 20 years ago.
The 70mm fans will be probably be disappointed to learn that no 70mm prints
have been planned - yet. The premiere in Canada will be a state-of-the-art
high-end 4K digital presentation, with full uncompressed 6-track digital
"Samsara". Directed by By Ron Fricke.
