Most widely held works by Lawrence Taub
Powaqqatsi by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Naqoyqatsi by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 826 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
Anima mundi by Philip Glass( Visual )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Astonishingly photographed, and featuring unforgettable, cascading scores by Philip Glass, these are immersive sensory experiences that meditate on the havoc humankind's obsession with technological advancement has wreaked on our world"--Container
Powaqqatsi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Visitors( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reveals humanity's trancelike relationship with technology. Footage of nonverbal human portraits and communication reveals a constant stream of unconscious emotions, barely noticed by most people. The protagonist, a wise gorilla, sagely witnesses the antics of homo sapiens
Koyaanisqatsi : life out of balance ; Powaqqatsi : life in transformation by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in Central American Indian and English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Powaqqatsi film calls into question everything we think we know about contemporary society. By juxtaposing images of ancient cultures with those of modern life, Powaqqatsi masterfully portrays the human cost of progress
Koyaanisqatsi = Life out of balance ; Powaqqatsi = life in transformation by Godfrey Reggio( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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. Presented by Francis Ford Coppola, this creation of director Godfrey Reggio, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass seems to flash by your eyes but lingers in your mind
The qatsi trilogy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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 set to the music of Philip Glass that progesses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by man, and finally to man's own manmade environment that is devoid of nature
