"It's not that we use technology, we live technology. Technology has become as ubiquitous as the air we breathe..." GODFREY REGGIO.
Filmmaker Godfrey Reggio boldly caught the attention of the world and stimulated the senses with his landmark feature KOYAANISQATSI, establishing a brave new genre of cinema. A profoundly rich and thought-provoking experience, KOYAANISQATSI is an aural and visual journey across myriad landscapes exploring our dependence on technology and its life-altering effect on the developing world.
Presented by legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, KOYAANISQATSI reflects a world spinning to the rhythm of machines, of clockwise civilisastions marching like ants in a megalopolis, vividly juxtaposing images of herculean aircraft and rocket launches with detailed time-lapse photography - presenting a document of vivid intensity.
Combining mesmerising visuals with an electrifying score from Oscar® nominated composer Philip Glass, incorporating haunting Hopi prophecies in choral arrangements, KOYAANISQATSI is a dynamic meditation of time, place and the bewildering technology that knows no bounds.
