In Vanda's Room

Loading...
A documentary-style film about Vanda, a heroin user in Lisbon, and the people around her who live in the ancient ghetto occupied by addicts, hustlers and poor immigrant families. All the buildings in Vanda's district are being demolished, which produces a perpetually grating cacophony throughout the film.

Koyaanisqatsi

Loading...
This first work of The Qatsi Trilogy wordlessly surveys the rapidly changing environments of the Northern hemisphere, in an astonishing collage created by the director, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass. It shuttles viewers from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, moving from images of untouched nature to others depicting human beings' increasing dependence on technology.

Powaqqatsi

Loading...
Here, Reggio turns his sights on third-world nations in the Southern hemisphere. Forgoing the sped-up aesthetic of the first film, Powaqqatsi employs a meditative slow motion in order to reveal the beauty of the traditional ways of life in those parts of the planet, and to show how cultures there are being eroded as their environments are taken over by industry.
