Ron Fricke’s Baraka (1992) will be hitting The Capitol’s big screen at RMIT University for a special bushfire fundraiser screening with all proceeds going towards Wildlife Victoria.

A breathtaking journey across 25 countries on six continents, Baraka is a sublime reflection on the beauty and the chaos of the world. The film brings together spectacular imagery with no plot, actors, script or narrative, transcending nationality, identity, place and time. The result is a meditative panorama of our natural and human landscapes – a visual survey made all the more urgent and affecting given today’s climate emergency.

The film will be followed by a conversation with design futurists about how we can and will move forward with hope and humanity.
