• Koyaanisqatsi (1982)

FP088: Life Out of Balance


The grand combination of Godfrey Reggio's thoughts, Philip Glass' music and Ron Fricke's cinematography make this film not only an emotional learning experience, but powerful cinema. Often copied, but never equally, even by its two companion pieces "Powaqqatsi" and "Naqoyqatsi," "Koyaanisqatsi" screams out wordlessly about the chaotic and ultimately destructive way of life here on Earth.
