submitted by christil@augsburg.edu

On Tuesday March 6, 6:00pm in OGC 100, the Augsburg University Urban Studies Program will show the first of three films for our Spring Film Series: The amazing “Koyaanisqatsi” — a visual adventure with exceptional musical score. Food provided!
From the Rotten Tomatoes review: “Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi word meaning “Life Out of Balance,” which is both the subtitle and the theme of this intriguing documentary. Godfrey Reggio has woven a hypnotic tapestry of time-lapse photography and Philip Glass’s trademark minimalist soundtrack, which drones the title every chance it gets. The viewer needs no voiceover to get the point: man is an animal spinning out of control and taking the planet with him. The film … is…an unforgettable cinematic experience.”
