Overview
Prepare to experience a truly remarkable film – a cinematic masterpiece so extraordinary that it regales the senses, stimulates the mind and actually "redefines the potential of filmmaking" (The Hollywood Reporter). Celebrated director Godrey Reggio, innovative cinematographer Ron Fricke and Golden Globe winning* composer Philip Glass have created a "spellbinding film so rich in beauty and detail that with each viewing it becomes a new and different film" (Leonard Maltin).

"Unique... profound... mesmerizing and thought provoking" (Boxoffice) Koyaanisqatsi contrasts the tranquil beauty of nature with the frenzied hum of contemporary urban society. Uniting breathtaking imagery with a hauntingly evocative, award winning score, it is "original and fascinating" (People) – "one of the greatest films of all time" (Uncut).

*1998: Score (with Burkhard Dallwitz), The Truman Show
