As part of the “Movies Meant for the Big Screen” series, the CALS Ron Robinson Theater tonight is showing KOYAANISQATSI. The screening starts at 7pm. Admission is $5.
Drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning “life out of balance,” this renowned 1982 documentary reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature. Featuring extensive footage of natural landscapes and elemental forces, the film gives way to many scenes of modern civilization and technology. Given its lack of narration and dialogue, the production makes its points solely through imagery and music, with many scenes either slowed down or sped up for dramatic effect.
