Summary
Koyaanisqatsi is a Hopi Indian word meaning variously: crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance (the subtitle for this film), and a state of life that calls for another way of life. This film presents a concert of visual images set to music that progesses from purely natural environments to nature as affected by man, and finally to man's own man made environment that is devoid of nature
