Words are not necessary sometimes, especially when a film’s visuals and music create poetic harmony. The three dialogueless films in Godfrey Reggio’s Qatsi series explore the rhythms of life around the world, from American urban centers to third world nations. The juxtapositions in the video that you’re about to see demonstrate the intrinsic similarities across the films, which were made in a twenty-year period from 1982-2002. The third film in the series, Naqoyqatsi, is streaming on Fandor and is essential viewing for those who love pure cinema. Take a look for yourself, and let the rich cinematic experience of the Qatsi series wash over you.
