Samsara

Lois Patiño

Spain
2023, 113'

The concept of the bardo in Buddhism is that of a transitional state, between death and reincarnation. This film is an exploration of that transitional space, that liminal moment of transformation. We first follow a teenage monk in Laos who reads to an elderly woman every day to prepare her for her journey to rebirth. When her spirit begins this journey, we join in an experience of light and sound, in which the circle of life is mirrored by that of the cinema.
