Director: Godfrey Reggio
Godfrey Reggio’s groundbreaking documentary begins in slow pace. He shows us clouds, waves and natural landscapes shaped by time. The pace picks up when the focus moves to human involvement on Earth and the hectic, speeded-up life in the cities. The message is not positive: the overcrowded planet is suffering. There is no dialogue, only Philip Glass’ omnipresent and repetitive score which turns the film into a powerful audio-visual symphony.
