Most widely held works by Michael Riesman
Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quando gli Hopi - una antichissima tribù dell'Arizona - pronunciano in un contesto di profezie la parola 'Koyaanisqatsi' che vuol dire 'la vita senza equilibrio', intendono riferirsi agli squilibri e follie di una vita in via di degradazione, alla quale necessita un nuovo stile. Ispirandosi a un tale concetto, questo film mira a raffrontare la maestà della natura - terre, mari, cieli - là dove essa è ancora incontaminata, con le precarie e spesso assurde realizzazioni dell'umanità di oggi, disancorata dai valori più essenziali e, appunto, naturali, lanciata in una corsa demenziale. Immagini naturali e urbane si susseguono in un montaggio ora accelerato ora rallentato, ritmato dalla musica che svolge un ruolo chiave

Naqoyqatsi by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this cinematic concert, the concluding film of the Qatsi Trilogy preceded by critically acclaimed Koyaanisqatsi ("Life out of balance"), and Powaqqatsi ("Life in transformation"), mesmerizing images reanimated from everyday reality, then visually altered with state-of-the-art digital techniques, chronicle the shift from a world organized by the principles of nature to one dominated by technology, the synthetic and the virtual. Extremes of intimacy and spectacle, tragedy and hope fuse in a tidal wave of visuals and music, giving rise to a unique artistic experience that reflects Reggio's vision of a brave new globalized world."--Container back cover
