KOYAANISQATSI / VISITORS
Discussion between films with director Godfrey Reggio.
KOYAANISQATSI
1982, Park Circus/MGM, 86 min, USA, Dir: Godfrey Reggio

The most famous and well-known of the QATSI trilogy, KOYAANISQATSI explores our perceptions of the world. The title of the film is taken from the Hopi word meaning "life out of balance," and that concept is used to examine the conflicts between technology and the environment. Philip Glass’ stunning score accompanies Reggio’s exploration of the idea that we don’t live with nature any longer - we live off of it. Perhaps the best-received of Reggio’s works, KOYANNISQATSI has a massive cult following and has influenced filmmakers and filmgoers alike.


VISITORS
2013, Cinedigm, 87 min, Dir: Godfrey Reggio

The latest feature from acclaimed KOYAANISQATSI writer-director Godfrey Reggio is another beautiful, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh and featuring a score by Philip Glass, this striking documentary reflects on humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology and its ripple effects throughout the natural world. Shot in high-resolution B&W (and comprised of only 74 shots), VISITORS is a visceral film that takes viewers to the moon and back on a journey of self-discovery.
