Koyaanisqatsi

86' - 1982 - Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Godfrey Reggio Composer: Philip Glass With: Edward Asner, Pat Benatar, Jerry Brown

This experimental film looks at the world and more specifically the effect man has had on the landscape and the environment. Without narration, the film shows the world in a pristine condition and untouched: blue skies, beautiful landscapes and endless vistas. The man-made world is much less appealing. Essentially a montage using a variety of film techniques to provide a visually stunning montage of images.
