After watching the documentary “Samsara” which is directed by Ron Fricke, I feel that this documentary is so much special. Devoid of any other dialogue, Samsara uses images to create its own idea—language, a social construction which is formed through a patterned system of communication, can reflect so called social context or social reality. For instance, in the documentary Samsara, people are able to see a list of images about the “food cycle”. Specifically, chickens are kept in a food-processing plant. All of these animals are suffering before they are slaughtered for humans to eat. Instead of letting animals live in a humane way, people pay much more attention to high efficiency and high profit. There is no doubt, in this kind of merciless way, the social reality is on full display. As well, just like the meaning of the title “Samsara”—the repeating cycle of birth, life and death, this documentary expresses this idea from different filming angles, reaching the same goals—to interpret the wheel of life. Through visual connection with different structures, people can understand the hidden meaning of Samsara, that society itself is just a repeating pattern. The individual forms of language in different documentaries or movies reflect the spirit of the society in which humans live.
