Dir. Godfrey Reggio. 1983, 86 mins. Restored DCP courtesy of Godfrey Reggio. Few nonfiction films have captured the imaginations of the mainstream moviegoing public more than Reggio’s major big-screen event: an abstract meditation on the contemporary Western world and the ever-shifting relationship between nature and technology. Filled with overwhelming sights (both in slow-motion and sped-up images) and sounds (a stunning, wildly influential score by Philip Glass), this singular experience transports viewers into an elevated emotional and intellectual realm.
