Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation

Godfrey Reggio's 1988 follow-up to his 1983 Koyaanisqatsi, working again with a score by Philip Glass, turns to the third world to mount its essayistic propositions. Ken Richards collaborated with Reggio on the script. Part two of a nonverbal trilogy that already sounds suspiciously like the kitschy “Family of Man” photography exhibit of the 50s—a heap of high-tech platitudes about “human endeavor.” Quatsi, incidentally, is the Hopi Indian term for “life.” 99 min.
