Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

I saw a documentary today that let me do just that: Baraka. It’s a non-narrative film that depicts footage of 152 locations throughout the world, of everything from religious ceremonies to seas of clouds at sunset to time-lapse photography of subways in Japan.

It displays not only the beauty in this world, but also the desolation and harsh realities. It was a mesmerizing, fascinating, breathtaking, goosebump-inducing sort of experience. The images and music are haunting and dreamlike, so powerful that words really are superfluous. Check it out if you’ve got an hour and a half sometime – it won’t be like anything you’ve ever seen before. You can watch it for free in HD here.
