A singular artist and activist, Godfrey Reggio is best known for the galvanizing, visually-stunning, thought-provoking films of The Qatsi Trilogy.
“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” – Godfrey Reggio, director of The Qatsi Trilogy
Astonishingly photographed, and featuring unforgettable, cascading scores by famed composer Philip Glass, these are immersive sensory experiences that meditate on the havoc humankind’s obsession with technological advancement has wreaked on our world. From 1983’s Koyaanisqatsi to 1988’s Powaqqatsi to 2002’s Naqoyqatsi, Reggio’s celebrated Quatsi Trilogy takes viewers on a journey from the ancient to the contemporary, from nature to industry, exploring life out of balance, in transformation, and as war, all the while keeping our eyes wide with wonder. Referencing the first film in the trilogy, the surprise box-office hit Koyaanisqatsi, Reggio has said of his film’s provocatively ambiguous messaging, “It’s meant to offer an experience, rather than an idea. For some people, it’s an environmental film. For some, it’s an ode to technology. For some people, it’s a piece of shit. Or it moves people deeply. It depends on who you ask. It is the journey that is the objective.” This July, don’t miss your opportunity to take the journey with Godfrey Reggio’s gloriously mind-blowing Qatsi Trilogy as it was meant to be experienced – on the big screen!
