Movie Moles on Samsara
Movie Moles Iven Hale and Jan Haaken discuss Samsara by the maker of the film Baraka. They agree the film has beautiful and compelling imagery, and offers a critique of commodity culture. Jan & Iven debate whether Samsara endorses a quietistic response to the dangers of capitalism, exploiting decontextualized images, or highlights the extent to which human suffering is created by capitalism. They conclude that it is worth seeing on the big screen.
