Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi. It`s art. Experience it.

Next time I`m edging, I`ll alternate this video with one of Japanese girls kissing.

Way cool. A club I bounced at back in the early `90`s had this playing on a big screen on an endless loop.

This was actually the first film in what has become known as the "Qatsi Trilogy":

Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance (1982)

Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation (1988)

Naqoyqatsi: Life as War (2002)

I highly recommend the entire series, along with a bag of mushrooms.

If you haven`t seen Koyaanisqatsi, it`s an audio/visual poem. The name means "Life Out of Balance" in Hopi. It`s more about modern society in contrast with the world we came out of.

More like the mistreatment of the Earth.
And I noticed that SOUTH America had no showing here(Unless I did not recognize the landscape), and those countries have had problems with their indigenous folk a wee bit longer than North America, and are still killing them for land in these times.

The actual video description from Vimeo is: "Koyaanisqatsi (1982) at 1552% speed. (The year 1552 marks the publication of "A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies," an account of the mistreatment of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas)"

Sheesh. Koyaanisqatsi has nothing to do with the mistreatment of indigenous Americans.
