Summary
  • A panoramic view of contemporary America without commentary or narrative, using time-lapse photography. The title is a Hopi Indian word meaning "a state of life that calls for another way of living"
  • Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi Indian word meaning variously: crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance (the subtitle for this film), and a state of life that calls for another way of life. This film presents a concert of visual images set to the music of Philip Glass that progesses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by man, and finally to man’ s own manmade environment that is devoid of nature
