“If man sends another Voyager to the distant stars and it can carry only one film on board, that film might be Baraka.”

Baraka is non narrative documentary movie directed by Ron Fricke. It is the first voice over movie shown by this club. Baraka is a Sufi word which meaning is a blessing or the breath, or essence of life, from which the evolutionary process unfolds. It has got many meaning in the respective language. It is the first 8K resolution video ever made of 65 mm film, on the world’s only scanner capable of it. It was made on 1992. The movie was filmed at 152 locations in 23 countries. It took over 14 months to film this movie.

Although it is non narrative movie, there was subtitle to show different places of the planet. It uses no language so need of translation. It speaks in magnificent images, natural sounds and music both composed and discovered. There was just like an environment of meditation. It can be seen by any race of the people. A different kind of natural events, life, human activities and technological shot was shown. It regards our planet and life upon it. It reflects the human habitation.

We can see many places of Nepal also. There are awesome pictures of different places of Nepal. Some of the places are Bhaktapur, Durbar Square, Hanuman Ghat, Mount Everest, Pashupati, Swayambhu. The film consists of awesome sights, joyful, sad, and beautiful in their own way. It is recommended to watch you this movie once in a life so that you can know the awesome behavior of the nature and know how beautiful our planet is.

It was successfully conducted and last for one and half hours. Students really enjoyed the movie and left the hall having some beautiful pictures in their minds.
