USUE to show "Samsara" film at Information Center of Atomic Energy

Ural State Economic University will host an outdoor screening of the film "Samsara" on Thursday at the Information Center of Atomic Energy.

"Samsara"--a Sanskrit word for the repeating cycle of birth, life and death--is a non-narrative documentary film directed by Ron Fricke. The movie was filmed over the course of five years in 25 countries around the world. It takes viewers into the world of sacred lands, disaster zones, industrial complexes and natural wonders, in an effort to display the strong rhythm of the planet.

Andrey Titov, a documentary filmmaker and member of the Union of Cinematographers, will answer the audience's questions at the event. He will also discuss the film with critic Victoria Demanova.
