Time Out says

See this worldly documentary on the big screen for charity

Melbourne’s support for bushfire relief causes continues with the Capitol Theatre presenting a special fundraising screening of the 1992 film Baraka, with 100 per cent of ticket sales going to Wildlife Victoria

Ron Fricke’s documentary, filmed across 25 countries, takes viewers through the world’s cities and forests. Although released in 1992, the film feels even more becoming more relevant today due to the current climate emergency. 

Following the screening, there will be conversations with design futurists about humanity and how we can move forward in the era of climate change. 

Baraka strays from the typical approach to filmmaking with no strict narrative structure. However, it gives an insight into life before the current climate crisis and takes viewers around the world through its vast imagery. 

The event will be a rare opportunity for people to see the film on the big screen while donating to a good cause.
