KO YAA NIS QATSI
ko yaa nis qatsi (from the Hopi language) n., 1. crazy life 2. life in turmoil 3. life out of balance 4. life disintegrating 5. a state of life that calls for another way of living
Told without dialogue, narration, cast or characters, Koyaanisqatsi is a dizzying, hypnotic example of cinema set to an extraordinary score by Philip Glass. It contrasts natural beauty with a population ever more dependent on modern technology.
Shot on a low budget in New York City and the American South West, the film found support from Francis Ford Coppola where it found a larger audience and has gone on to become a cult classic.
