Baraka is a 1992 documentary film directed by Ron Fricke about the world as it was more than 25 years ago. Unlike most documentaries Baraka is a simply a collection or “montage” of well framed photographic recordings with out any narration whatsoever which allows the viewer to focus more on whats in the images. While the film does not have a presenter it most certainly follows a story line which begins in the morning and ends in the evening under a star filled skye. Baraka begins as a rather idealistic view of the Earth, as one absorbs the epic natural landscapes, waterfalls and forests captured in beautiful cinematography. Moving towards the end of the film the narrative turns a little darker as the more destructive aspects of nature are shown as well as scenes of man made destruction such as deforestation.
