Trailer

Synopsis

Experience the three visionary films of Godfrey Reggio and in a rare opportunity hear the musical scores performed by their legendary composer Philip Glass.
In a Melbourne premiere, Philip Glass and his Ensemble will perform live at each program creating an unforgettable film and music concert – Jul 31 – Aug 1st 2012. 
 
Godfrey Reggio's awe-inspiring follow-up to landmark feature KOYAANISQATSI is as mesmerising as it is profound - an aural and visual journey across the rich and raggedy tapestries of the world, exploring the heights and depths of contemporary civilisation and the inevitable impact on nature.
 
Presented&nbspby legendary filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, POWAQQATSI&nbspexplores the world and its&nbspintrinsically disparate civilisations, vividly juxtaposing images of ancient cultures&nbspwith those of&nbspmodern life to present a document of timeless authenticity.
 
From the&nbspdusty toil and turmoil&nbspof the&nbspgold miners of  'Serra Pelada' in Brazil to the seeming tranquility of prayer along the&nbspGanges River and the collective experiences that exist in between POWAQQATSI explores the greater human cost of progress in an ever environmentally aware world.
 
Combining remarkable visuals&nbspin 1080p high definition, with a heart-pounding score from renowned composer Philip Glass, POWAQQATSI is a dynamic meditation of time, place and the many&nbsppeople that keep our world spinning around.
