'''''Koyaanisqatsi''''' is a 1983 Godfrey Reggio film. There is no obvious plot or story, there are no actors, there is no dialog. The whole film is just time lapse footage of nature, people, and machines with music composed by PhilipGlass. Despite the synopsis sounding dull, the film is mesmerizing. The film starts with beautiful footage of the desert and natural rock formations. From there human work is more and more evident. The middle section of the film is about the hustle and bustle of modern life. Towards the end, the film focuses on people of different walks of life. The last sequence is a failed rocket launch in slow motion.

Reggio's cinematographer Ron Fricke went on to make ''Chronos'' (in IMAX), ''Baraka'', and ''Samsara'', all of which have obvious similarities to the "qatsi" films.

*** In an interview on the Criterion Blu-ray, cinematographer Ron Fricke says he believes Reggio intended ''Koyaanisqatsi'' to present a GreenAesop: whereas '''he''' [=[Fricke]=] strove to reveal beauty in ''all'' of the images, regardless of their content. WordOfGod suggests Fricke's opinion presumes CreativeDifferences which did not actually exist.
