quatsi night – godfrey reggio: koyaanisqatsi and powaqqatsi (film screening)

koyaanisqatsi and powaqqatsi were the first two parts of a series of films by sergio reggio, which recently grew into a trilogy. the series examines both western lifestyle and culture using cinematic, visual language (koyaanisqatsi), and as its counterpart cultures on the southern hemisphere, in developing countries, as they are called. an essential element of this cinematic experience is philip class’s original musical score.
