Wheel of Time
Filmfest 2007

WHEEL OF TIME focuses its deferential gaze on the Kalachakra ordaining ritual of Tibetan Buddhist monks in Bodh Gaya, India, and the creation of the sand mandala that represents the imaginary palace contemplated during meditation... if WHEEL OF TIME’s final breathtaking shot is any indication, expect some reincarnated version of the German auteur to resume the down-and-dirty and euphoric cinematic anthropologies he’s been laying out for more than 40 years now.
