"October 4, 1982. More than 5,000 people filled the sold out Radio City Music Hall to experience a remarkable film event. That event was the world premiere of KOYAANISQATSI. Now everyone can share the power of that experience. "
it remains profound
KOYAANISQATSI remains a profound statement over twenty years after its
original release. the point then is the point now.
one of the great things about this film is that while the intrusion of man
is initially presented as profane and abhorrent, ultimately there is found a
symmetry to the human experience that is as organic as anything found in the
`natural' world. i used to be tempted to perceive humans as the only
species on the plant that didn't fit, that threw everything out of balance,
as it were. but over time it has become apparent that even the blight of
man on earth is a naturally occurring phenomenon. the evolution of life is
the destruction of life. the circle is unbroken.
