Film, Discussion and Music:
In partnership with Chicago Opera Theatre, Facets presents a screening and discussion of Godfrey Reggio's 1982 cult favoriteKoyaanisqatsi. With an award-winning score by Phillip Glass, the film will be followed by a reception, including live music provided by Chicago Opera Theatre. The screening will take place at Facets Multi-Media on Sunday, February 17 at 12:00pm.
Koyaanisqatsi, a Hopi word meaning "life out of balance," is a non-narrative film that presents an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two different worlds -- technology-based urban life versus the environment.
The event will begin with an introduction by COT General Director Andreas Mitisek, and Facets' Executive Director Milos Stehlik.
After the film, enjoy a panel discussion including Scott Manning Stevens, Director of the Newberry's D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies, Judy Hoffman, University of Chicago Senior Lecturer in the Department of Cinema, and Northwestern University Neuroscience PhD candidate, James Antony. Live music and a reception to follow!
