Film for Thought: SAMSARA

This popular winter program features specially curated selections inspired by themes explored in our current season of exhibitions. The three-installment series of documentary films offers a thought-provoking look at life’s spiritual and natural interconnectedness, challenges to the accepted roles of women in male-dominated fields, and the infinite and unexpected creative possibilities in simple objects. We encourage attendees to arrive early to explore the exhibitions during a period of quiet viewing.  Following the film, share your thoughts during an informal discussion led by experienced guest moderators.

Samsara is a Sanskrit word meaning “the ever-turning wheel of life.” Selected for the themes it shares with the Masayuki Koorida: Sculpture exhibition, Samsara illuminates the links between humanity and the rest of nature. Neither a traditional documentary nor a travelogue, the film takes the form of a non-verbal, guided meditation. Through its contemplative pace and moving imagery, Samsara reminds us that, however large the planet may appear, however diverse we may seem in our teachings, all living beings are part of one magnificent cycle.
