Koyaanisqatsi (Life Out Of Balance)

SUPPORT

An unconventional, stunning work in every way, Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi was a sensation when it was released to theatres in 1983. Drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning “life out of balance,” this celebrated documentary reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature.
This first work of The Qatsi Trilogy wordlessly surveys the rapidly changing environments of the Northern Hemisphere, in an astonishing collage created by the director, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass. It shuttles viewers from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, moving from images of untouched nature to others depicting human beings’ increasing dependence on technology. Koyaanisqatsi’s heterodox methods (including hypnotic time-lapse photography that was much imitated in the wake of the film’s surprise box-office success) make it a look at our world from a truly unique angle. Presented by Francis Ford Coppola, who helped promote and distribute the film to theatres because he felt it was “important for people to see,” Koyaanisqatsi is an unforgettable experience not be missed on the big screen! (Dir. by Godfrey Reggio, 1983, USA, 86 mins., Not Rated)
