Double bill featuring two of the films produced by the acclaimed partnership of composer Philip Glass and filmmaker Godfrey Reggio. 'Koyaanisqatsi' (1983) features American land- and cityscapes, often shown in slow or fast motion, in an visionary meditation on the American way of life as a 'life out of balance'. 'Powaqqatsi' (1988) uses the same format but turns its attention to the Third World and the question of a way of life that consumes the life forces of other beings in order to further itself.
