It was thirty years ago today that I first met Sri Mataji Nirmala Devi in person, and my life headed off in a completely unexpected direction.

Producer Mark Magidson and director/cinematographer Ron Fricke, have established an international reputation for making visually stunning films that investigate the human condition in epic, dialogue-free documentaries. Their previous film Baraka became a worldwide hit, and their latest film Samsara looks like doing the same. I spoke to the pair about the ideas behind their film and the technical aspects of shooting on a large format film in the age of digital miniaturisation.
