“The utopia of the technological order is virtual immortality, hitherto only ascribed to the gods, to the divinity. Now, we have a new pantheon. The computer sits in the middle of it. The computer, not being a sign, is the most powerful instrument in the world in that it produces what it signifies: it produces this globalisation. In that sense, it is the highest magic in the world, and something that we’re all in adoration of. And that’s what these films (‘Koyaanisqatsi,’ ‘Powaqqatsi’ and ‘Naqoyqatsi’) are about.” – Director Godfrey Reggio
“Koyaanisqatsi” is filmed in the Northern Hemisphere. “Powaqqatsi” shows the Southern Hemisphere.
