/"*Special Space Denied: Bethlehem and The Wall*/" (20 min)

Baraka (/blessing/)

Shot in breathtaking 70mm in 24 countries on six continents, */BARAKA/* 
is a transcendent global tour that explores the sights and sounds of the 
human condition like nothing you've ever seen or felt before. These are 
the wonders of a world without words, viewed through man and nature's 
own prisms of symmetry, savagery, harmony and chaos.

 From Nepal to Kenya, from Australia to Brazil, people try to cope with 
the changes that have altered their landscape, crowding them together 
and speeding up daily life. The film shows us these alienated people, 
but also images of traditions--whirling dervishes and Tibetan 
monks--that offer different, peaceful ways of existence.

/“A masterpiece. Dialogue free, it's brilliant in its simplicity; a 
series of slow-moving shots mesmerise the audience into a meditation on 
life on Earth/." ~ Sam Toy, Empire

/"...An awesome cinematic world tour...../"  ~Stephen Holden, New York Times

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
