Where is the sun? Why am I in a traffic jam? Am I loved?
Yes you are...
..by Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot. Land of great history, abundance of great seafood, plenty of pristine beaches and heartfelt people just as sunny as the weather. A oasis of colors and flavors that embraces you making you feel truly beloved.
For Italia.nl we, Marianna&Caspar, crossed the region from the beautiful scape of Gargano till the most southern land end of Italy, Salento. Senses wide open, hunger for great experiences. Local key figures received us with open arms and introduced us to a true Puglia. Enjoy the visual story of how we embraced Puglia, or better how Puglia embraced us. The story is told alongside the enchanting movements and sound of the Pizzica, which iis a folkloristic dance on the beat of a thriving tarantella.
Escape city traffic and bad weather.. come with us on a journey.

Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience. SAMSARA reunites director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson, whose award-winning films BARAKA and CHRONOS were acclaimed for combining visual and musical artistry.
SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.
Expanding on the themes they developed in BARAKA (1992) and CHRONOS (1985), SAMSARA explores the wonders of our world from the mundane to the miraculous, looking into the unfathomable reaches of man’s spirituality and the human experience. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, SAMSARA takes the form of a nonverbal, guided meditation. Through powerful images, the film illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature, showing how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.
