Playing in the CCA Studio

Playing daily Nov 10 -16 at 2:45pm as part of CCA’s Godfrey Reggio’s retrospective (no screenings Monday & Tuesday)

Five years after Godfrey Reggio stunned audiences with Koyaanisqatsi, he again joined forces with composer Philip Glass and other collaborators for a second chapter.

Here, Reggio turns his sights on third-world nations in the Southern Hemisphere. Forgoing the sped-up aesthetic of the first film, Powaqqatsi employs a meditative slow motion in order to reveal the beauty of the traditional ways of life in those parts of the planet, and to show how cultures there are being eroded as their environments are taken over by industry.

This is the most intensely spiritual segment of Reggio’s philosophical and visually remarkable Qatsi Trilogy.
