Overview
Hailed by audiences and critics around the world as "mesmerizing" (The Detroit News), this second installment of writer/director Godfrey Reggio's apocalyptic "qatsi" trilogy is "quite simply one of the most magnificent visual and aural spectacles ever made" (L.A. Daily News)! Combining stunning cinematography with the exquisite music of award-winning compser Philip Glass, Powaqqatsi is a "breathtaking experience working on many levels... emotional, spiritual, intellectual and aesthetic" (The Hollywood Reporter)!

Bold, haunting and epic in scale, this extraordinary film calls into question everything we think we know about contemporary society. By juxtaposing images of ancient cultures with those of modern life, Powaqqatsi masterfully portrays the human cost of progress. It is a film that engages the soul as well as the mind; it is truly "an absorbing experience" (Movies on TV and Videocassette).
