Academy Award®-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Best Director, Traffic, 2000) presents Naqoyqatsi (“Life As War”), from filmmaker Godfrey Reggio, in collaboration with composer Philip Glass, whose original score features renowned cellist yo-yo Ma. in this cinematic concert – a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Koyaanisqatsi (“Life out of Balance”), and Powaqqatsi (“Life in transformation”) – mesmerising images are plucked from everyday reality, then visually altered to chronicle the shift from a world organised by the principals 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 globalised world.
