Message from Christopher Reyna of New Paradigm Productions:

“Film Fans…

“The Odyssey is over… Samsara is done. The 102-minute film with amazing images from 26 countries, and a killer soundtrack has been released for the beginning of the Fall Film Festival Circuit. The partnership of Ron Fricke, DP & Director; and Mark Magidson, Producer & Co-Editor was supported by a first class creative and technical team… including myself as the Imaging Producer.

“The ultra high resolution 4K digital presentation, & the 7.1 DOLBY audio were huge audience hits at the Toronto International Film Festival’s World Premiere.”
