This is Not My Culture – Watch and Work

September 11, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Watch and Work: Free screening of Koyaanisqatsi Godfrey Reggio’s classic 1982 film “Life Out of Balance”

Drop in to watch Koyaanisqatsi “Life Out of Balance” an experimental classic film featuring a collection of expertly photographed phenomena with no conventional plot, to a soundtrack by Philip Glass. The footage focuses on nature, humanity, and the relationship between them.

Drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning “life out of balance,” this renowned documentary/experimental film reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature. Featuring extensive footage of natural landscapes and elemental forces, the film gives way to many scenes of modern civilization and technology. Given its lack of narration and dialogue, the production makes its points solely through imagery and music, with many scenes either slowed down or sped up for dramatic effect.
