For several years the filmmakers attempted to secure permission to film in North Korea, but were ultimately denied access.
Samsara (a Sanskrit word literally meaning "continuous flow") is the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth (reincarnation) within Hinduism, Buddhism, Bön and Jainism. In Sikhism this concept is slightly different and looks at our actions in the present and consequences in the present.
The first feature-length film since Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet (1996) to be shot entirely on 65mm film.
According to the filmmakers, Michael Stearns (composer) created his original score for Samsara after the film had been "silently edited" by Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson. This is different from their previous collaboration on Baraka (1992) where visuals were largely edited to a soundtrack.
The dancing prisoners, were actually dancing to different music than the one heard in the movie. Amongst other tunes, they were actually dancing to MC Hammer and Michael Jackson songs.
