Koyaanisqatsi - Hopi Indian for "World out of Balance"
Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
This is a must see, a cult film from the early '80's about the ecological destruction of the earth by modern societies. It takes a bit over an hour to see, but it's worth it. A Classic, on Youtube.
The music is by Phillip Glass. Eerie, mystical...
The link is here:
This movie is beautiful, a little sad, and dramatic.
Particularly so, are the prophesies made by the Hopi's listed at the very end....
Hopefully, the speaker systems on all of your computers can handle the full dynamic range the music provides, the sound is remarkable, extraordinary....
The Cinematography is much like IMAX.
Hope you can all find time to see it. You will have to put up with a short commercial at the beginning.
