Atmosphere | Koyaanisqatsi

Koyaanisqatsi

Friday 14th January 2011, 7.30 for 8pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means "a state of life that calls for another way of living".

This film by Godfrey Reggio consists of footage of cities and natural landscapes across the USA. It contains no dialogue or narration. The story is told by juxtaposing images to startling music by Philip Glass.

Reggio says that "it's not for lack of love of the language that these films have no words. It's because, from my point of view, our language is in a state of vast humiliation. It no longer describes the world in which we live."
