Experience the three visionary films of Godfrey Reggio and in a rare opportunity hear the musical scores performed by their legendary composer Philip Glass.
In a Melbourne premiere, Philip Glass and his Ensemble will perform live at each program creating an unforgettable film and music concert - Jul 31 - Aug 1st 2012.
Godfrey Reggio's awe-inspiring follow-up to landmark feature KOYAANISQATSI is as mesmerising as it is profound - an aural and visual journey across the rich and raggedy tapestries of the world, exploring the heights and depths of contemporary civilisation and the inevitable impact on nature.
Presented by legendary filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, POWAQQATSI explores the world and its intrinsically disparate civilisations, vividly juxtaposing images of ancient cultures with those of modern life to present a document of timeless authenticity.
From the dusty toil and turmoil of the gold miners of 'Serra Pelada' in Brazil to the seeming tranquility of prayer along the Ganges River and the collective experiences that exist in between POWAQQATSI explores the greater human cost of progress in an ever environmentally aware world.
Combining remarkable visuals in 1080p high definition, with a heart-pounding score from renowned composer Philip Glass, POWAQQATSI is a dynamic meditation of time, place and the many people that keep our world spinning around.
