Plot Outline:

With a score by Philip Glass, Koyaanisqatsi (Hopi for "Life Out of Balance") is a journey through time and history. No dialogue, just images, sped up, slowed down showing nature and man's influence on it. -- Chris Kavan

A dizzying experience - an intelligent piece of film-art created by an extremely talented group of people. This is an opera of fluid visuals - practically wordless (if not for the flashing collage of billboards & television content) and though it's meant to stimulate the mind with a message, it leaves what that message is up to you & your interpretation. The cinematography is astonishing, and brilliantly paired with an original score that is near perfection. The highlight being the second half, which is much like seeing society from another planet through a Fisher-Price Viewmaster...and it is both depressing and gorgeous.
