Event Description

This Wednesday at 7pm. there will be a screening of the landmark film Koyaanisqatsi at Kiwassa Neighbourhood House, 2425 Oxford St. We have booked the upstairs Living Room which has comfortable couches for the first to arrive.

This is an amazing film by director Godfrey Reggio with music by Philip Glass. A unique film event not to be missed ! (Please see the storyline below to get an idea of the film) And just in case you are not sold on this film event's cultural content alone..... There will be free popcorn and refreshments! Hope to see you there !

Storyline

Koyaanisqatsi is a documentary (of sorts). It is also a visual concert of images set to the haunting music of 'Phillip Glass' . While there is no plot in the traditional sense, there is a definate scenario. The film opens on ancient native American cave drawings, while the soundtrack chants "Koyaanisqatsi" which is a Hopi indian term for "life out of balance". The film uses extensive time lapse photography (which speeds images up) and slow motion photography to make comparisons between different types of physical motion. In one of the first examples, we see cloud formations moving (sped up) intercut with a montage of ocean waves (slowed down) and in such a way we are able to see the similarities of movement between these natural forces. This technique of comparison exists throughout the film, and through it we learn more about the world around us. The film progresses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by man...Written by Andrew M. Somers
