Free of traditional storytelling methods – there’s no dialogue, no narrative, no cast nor characters – director Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi present exquisite widescreen imagery that weaves and dances, slows and races to the dizzying tempo of Philip Glass’s extraordinary scores, tracing life’s shift from nature’s cycles to technology’s inescapable forward momentum. To celebrate the Blu-ray release of these two visionary films this coming Monday (12 May), we have TWO bundles of Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi to give away to our loyal readers, courtesy of Arrow Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
These feature-packed discs will be released as a deluxe Blu-ray featuring newly restored digital transfers of Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, both approved by director Godfrey Reggio, an introduction by filmmaker and composer Gary Tarn, interviews with Reggio and composer Philip Glass on the making of both films and Anima Mundi, Reggio’s 28-minute montage of over seventy animal species, scored once again by Glass. The Blu-ray will also include a new illustrated collector’s 72-page booklet featuring writing on the films by Anton Bitel, Michael Brooke, Peter Cowie and Jean-Baptiste Gouyon.
