Histoire(s) du cinéma: Samsara

What's on
  • location: Close-up Film Centre
  • Date & time:

As part of their Histoire(s) du cinéma series, Close-up Film Centre is pleased to host three special screenings of Samsara (dir. Lois Patiño, 2023).

“In Buddhist philosophy, the word “samsara” refers to the nature of life as a cycle of deaths and rebirths. It is this process that Lois Patiño evokes to breath-taking effect in Samsara, a film with a triptych structure that follows a soul from the body of Mon (Simone Milavanh), an elderly woman in Laos, and later into the form of a baby goat in Zanzibar. It is a voyage that probes spiritual and cinematic boundaries to create a deeply moving meditation on what happens after we die and is, at times, a transcendent experience.” – Ben Nicholson.

Catch a 20:00 screening on the 6, 13, or 20 April.
