Powaqqatsi: Life In Transformation

Godfrey Reggio’s 1988 follow-up to his 1983 Koyaanisqatsi, working again with a score by Philip Glass, turns to the third world to mount its essayistic propositions. Ken Richards collaborated with Reggio on the script. Part two of a nonverbal trilogy that already sounds suspiciously like the kitschy Family of Man photography exhibit of the 50sa heap of high-tech platitudes about human endeavor. Quatsi, incidentally, is the Hopi Indian term for life. 99 min. (JR)
