KOYAANISQATSI
1982, Park Circus/MGM, 86 min, USA, Dir: Godfrey Reggio

The most famous and well-known of the QATSI trilogy, KOYAANISQATSI explores our perceptions of the world. The title of the film is taken from the Hopi word meaning "life out of balance," and that concept is used to examine the conflicts between technology and the environment. Philip Glass’ stunning score accompanies Reggio’s exploration of the idea that we don’t live with nature any longer - we live off of it. Perhaps the best-received of Reggio’s works, KOYANNISQATSI has a massive cult following and has influenced filmmakers and filmgoers alike.
