Philip Glass’s music complements this thrilling visual adventure through different landscapes and man-made environments.

USA 1982
Dir Godfrey Reggio
Certificate U

This groundbreaking, thrilling picture is as much a musical tour-de-force from Philip Glass as it is a stunning original documentary depicting how humanity has parted ways with nature, and how life is now ‘out of balance’ (Koyaanisqatsi in Hopi language). Godfrey Reggio’s trademark of slowing down and speeding up the action in response to the music has often been emulated but never bettered.

The screening on Wed 12 Feb will be introduced by film programmer and writer Sophie Brown.
