- 20121012 - Filmosophers'

The Filmosophers are inspired to report Samsara will be showing at the Bijou Cinema on the University Of Iowa campus, starting Friday, 10/12. 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 Samsara posteryears 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." From all we've learned, Samsara is a must-see for fans of the filmosophical experience. Our inspiring friend, transformational artist and film fan David Todd of "Bell & Todd Arts" described Samsara as "a remarkable film and experience!"

We'll also talk about new releases getting great buzz, including Ben Affleck's Argo; writer/director Martin McDonagh's Seven Psycopaths; Middle of Nowhere, winner of the Best Director Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival: "an elegant, powerfully emotional and courageous film" and more. We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM Central, again Sunday mornings at 9:00. "Prepare yourself for an unparalleled sensory experience." - Samsara
