Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio ( Visual )
35 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi Indian word meaning variously: crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance (the subtitle for this film), and a state of life that calls for another way of life. This film presents a concert of visual images that progresses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by people, and finally to our contemporary urban environment that is devoid of nature. The film is visual with musical accompaniment and some singing. At the end of the movie, title cards describe a Hopi prophecy

Naqoyqatsi by Godfrey Reggio ( Visual )

"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

Reggio turns his sights on third-world nations in the Southern hemisphere. Forgoing the sped-up aesthetic of the first film, Powaqqatsi employs a meditative slow motion in order to reveal the beauty of the traditional ways of life in those parts of the planet, and to show how cultures there are being eroded as their environments are taken over by industry
