Koyaanisqatsi

http://youtu.be/Sps6C9u7ras

Some of Adafruit ventured out last night from the factory to see Koyaanisqatsi. The full video is on Youtube.

Lose yourself in Philip Glass’s powerful music for the 1982 Godfrey Reggio film Koyaanisqatsi: A Life Out Of Balance, performed live by the Philharmonic and the Philip Glass Ensemble, as the landmark film is projected on a huge screen above the Avery Fisher Hall stage.

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.

It was fantastic.

  1. I went to a similar performance many years ago in Berkeley. Fantastic, indeed.

  2. Good grief! Has it been nearly 30 years already???

    Anyway, it’s great to see one of my favorite films back on the arthouse circuit!

    Light entertainment it ain’t, but glad you appreciated the power of the message.

    They made a sequel, Powaqqatsi, but I didn’t like it nearly as much. Never did see his third of the trilogy, Naqoyqatsi…
