Koyaanisqatsi

KOYAANISQATSI
(a Francis Ford Coppola Film)

In the Hopi Language,
the word Koyaanisqatsi means "crazy Life",
life in turmoil, life out of balance,
life disintegrating, a state of life ...
that calls for another way of living.

 

 

Koyaanisqatsi is an apocalyptic vision of two different worlds ... urban life / technology ... vs. the natural environment.  Koyaanisqatsi is a sort of documentary based on Hopi Prophecy ... and was originally created between 1975 and 1982. There are no actors, there is no plot and there is no script.  All of the images in Koyaanisqatsi are of real life.  The subject of the images vary greatly, but they are presented in such a way as to show the contrast between humanity and nature ... images that will provoke a thousand thoughts.

Many people have said the images and comparisons presented ... are disturbing ...

But, it is an accurate visual study of our culture ... filmed over 28 years ago.

It is not a blood and guts type documentary ... but if you are troubled by what you see ...

It is time to read Songs of the Shaman, The Path of the Feather.
