I just watched this short documentary this weekend. Produced by Francis Ford Coppola and directed by Godfry Reggio with music by Philip Glass, Koyaanisqatsi is a really unusual and beautiful film. There are no words – just the music and the images, and yet it is very powerful and sends clear messages. It starts off a little slow, but then the music really picks up and carries you into the scenes that are taking place. It's also really fascinating to see what life was like in 1982, when the filming was done –how things have changed and how many things are the same.
