Now this is the kind of film I’ve been hoping to see on YouTube since MGM announced their partnership with the online video behemoth. This film is the first installment of Godfrey Reggio’s Qatsi trilogy: KOYAANISQATSI.
An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental stance. Koyaanisqatsi is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet. The message of director Godfrey Reggio is clear: humans are destroying the planet, and all of human progress is pointlessly foolish.
