    The third and last installment of Qatsi’s trilogy, Naqoyqatsi (2002), it was conceived by Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass in three movements, like a symphony.
    This engaging audio-visual analysis on the anthropocene comes to an end, with a look at the future horizons of the new century. The Philip Glass Ensemble, conducted by Michael Riesman, will play the score, with Erica Piccotti as cello soloist.

    Since 1983’s Koyaanisqatsi to 2002’s Naqoyqatsi, passing through Powaqqatsi (1988), Reggio and Glass take us on a journey from the ancient to the contemporary, from wilderness to the ubiquitous industrial revolution, exploring what life has become: without any balance, in continuous transformation and haunted by conflicts and wars, destruction and pollution. Yet, our eyes and ears are continually the target of wonder and excitement.
