Naqoyqatsi, or Naqoyqatsi: Life as War, is a film which could be described as an experimental documentary, although not a straightforward documentation of reality, or an art film[1]. It is the third and final film of the 1983-2002 Qatsi trilogy written, directed, and produced by Godfrey Reggio, and edited by Jon Kane. The three films of the trilogy have musical scores by composer Philip Glass, but no commentary or speech. The music is more in the traditional orchestral tradition than much of Glass's work as a familiar doorway to images so disconnected from the familiar world. One instrument, the cello played by Yo-Yo Ma, plays a single line running through the entire piece. Some unconventional instruments are used in addition to traditional ones, including a didgeridoo and an electronically-created Jew's harp
