The beauty of 70mm: Stills from Samsara

Ron Fricke's Samsara may not offer very much besides pretty imagery, but boy does it do that well! Shot in 70mm, it's a showcase of how much can be crammed into every frame of the stock's 2.2:1 aspect ratio.

It is unfortunate that no 70mm prints will be released for projection, as the final film is projected in 4k digital. Nonetheless, enjoy the feast that is the following stills taken directly from the original prints:
