An unconventional work in every way, Godfrey Reggio’s KOYAANISQATSI was nevertheless a sensation when it was released in 1983.

The astonishing wordless collage created by the director, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass shuttles viewers from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, looking at our world from a truly unique angle.
