Koyaanisqatsi – Godfrey Reggio/Philip Glass. It’s a film without any characters, plot or narrative structure. And its title is notoriously hard to pronounce. What’s not to love about Koyaanisqatsi? Koyaanisqatsi’s formula is simple: combine epic cinematography with the swelling intensity of Philip Glass’s celebrated original score. Reggio’s directorial vision is key. He drove the project for six years on a small budget as he travelled across the USA in the mid-to-late 1970s, filming its natural and urban wonders with such originality. Koyaanisqatsi means life out of balance. Elemental poetry of place.
