Powaqqatsi

Ongoing

Dir. Godfrey Reggio. 1988, 99 mins, 35mm. After the remarkable success of Koyaanisqatsi, Reggio returned with this hit follow-up, an even more spiritually concerned film about people’s relationship to the landscape of the contemporary world. Focusing specifically on the plights of those in third-world nations, Reggio slows down time to capture all forms of human movement. Also featuring a shimmering, driving score by Philip Glass, this sequel equals the original in moral inquiry and rich natural beauty.
