Philip Glass' soundtrack and Ron Fricke's cinematography are the twin pillars of the narrative voice in this first film of Reggio's 'qatsi' trilogy. It opens with a single deep red word, some archaic cave drawings and a mournful hum. All of which represents our collective 'life out of balance', a translation from the Hopi Indian word 'koyaanasqatsi'. This is scrapbook filmmaking in harmony with the creative elements.
