Summary
In this cinematic concert - the concluding film of the Qatsi Trilogy preceded by critically acclaimed Koyaanisqatsi (Life out of balance), and Powaqqatsi (Life in transformation) - mesmerizing images reanimated from everyday reality, then visually altered with state-of-the-art digital techniques, chronicle the shift from a world organized by the principles of nature to one dominated by technology, the synthetic and the virtual. Extremes of intimacy and spectacle, tragedy and hope fuse in a tidal wave of visuals and music, giving rise to a unique artistic experience that reflects Reggio's vision of a brave new globalized world
