->''If man sends another Voyager to the distant stars and it can carry only one film on board, that film might be "Baraka." It uses no language, so needs no translation. It speaks in magnificent images, natural sounds, and music both composed and discovered. It regards our planet and the life upon it. It stands outside of historical time. To another race, it would communicate: This is what you would see if you came here.''

'''''Baraka''''' is a {{Documentary}} directed and photographed by ''Film/{{Koyaanisqatsi}}'' cinematographer Ron Fricke and released in 1992. Its topic is, quite simply, planet Earth itself, and the sentient species that calls it home. The ''entire movie'' is nothing but SceneryPorn. Imagine our planet filmed as though it was [[Film/{{Avatar}} Pandora]] and you're halfway there.
