Koyaanisqatsi. Life Out Of Balance
USA 1983, 82 min., original version
Director: Godfrey Reggio

The title of the experimental documentary Koyaanisqatsi is a North American Hopi term for “life out of balance.” A minimalist soundtrack by Philip Glass accompanies the image sequences that explore the disproportions between nature and civilization. Landscapes images are interspersed with shots of man-made industrial areas, subtly questioning the human way of life without uttering a single word.

Limited seating. The current exhibition will be open from 6:00 p.m. onwards.
