About the Movie

Powaqqatsi is the second of the feature-length "non narrative" films produced, directed and co-scripted by Godfrey Reggio. As in his earlier Koyaanisqatsi, Reggio utilizes a collage of sounds and gorgeous, manipulated images to make a comment on modern life. And as in the earlier film, Reggio's imagery is backed up by a haunting Philip Glass score. This time, Reggio concentrates on Third World cultures, and the way those cultures are perceived and sometimes exploited by the power merchants of the world.

Hauntingly Beautiful

I love this film (all three in this trilogy actually)
So far ahead of it's time. Powerful images!

Moving and Raw

I saw this film at the Hollywood Bowl in 2011. I had no expectations going in and came out very moved by the human story that unfolded. I recommend this provocative film.
