Naqoyqatsi: Life as War

Here’s an excerpt from Godfrey Reggio’s final piece of the Qatsi trilogy.

Still loving the music from Phillip Glass.

This one is about the transition from nature to technology. So he went all out with the computerised images.

I’m really attracted to the non-narrative nature of Reggio’s work.

And the Glass music allows your own interpretation.

Fusion of image and music.

Click below to see. It’s nine minutes or so. The stock exchange footage near the end is scary and beautiful.
