About the Film:

Directed by Godfrey Reggio. 1982. USA. 86 mins

This cult classic is a powerfully wordless statement about humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet. Koyaanisqatsi, Reggio's debut as a film director and producer, is the first film of the Qatsi trilogy. The title is a Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of balance." Created between 1975 and 1982, the film is an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two worlds— urban life and technology versus the environment. This is a rare chance to see this visual tour de force on the big screen.
