SURREAL REELS: KOYAANISQATSI (U)

Date Time
Sat 26th August 4.30pm

Dir: Godfrey Reggio | USA | 1982 | 86 mins
Documentary

The masterful first film in Godrey Reggio’s Qatsi trilogy, drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning “life out of balance,” this triumphant, justly renowned documentary reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature. Featuring rolling, relentless time-lapse footage of natural landscapes and elemental forces on a vast scale, the film simply sweeps you away before giving way to scenes of modern civilisation and technology: oil fields, rockets, planes, traffic, cities. Beautifully scored by Philip Glass, Reggio’s extraordinary film explores the involvement of man with life on earth and reminds you to be astounded by the miracles of our world. A must-see on the big screen.
