ARTIST’S CHOICE |  Koyaanisqatsi | INTRODUCED BY GRAHAM FITKIN

Koyaanisqatsi means ‘life out of balance’, in the Hopi language. Godfrey Reggio and Ron Fricke’s experimental film, is composed almost entirely of slow motion and time-lapse footage of epic natural landscapes and human movement through built environments. The imagery is accompanied by a specially composed soundtrack by Philip Glass, without dialogue or narration. 

Cornwall-based composer Graham Fitkin, who works with international orchestras, ensembles and soloists, using acoustic and electronic instruments and found sounds, will introduce the Thursday screening. You can read his introduction here
