Summary
"Godfrey Reggio takes on the digital revolution in the final chapter of his Qatsi trilogy. Through a variety of cinematic techniques, including slow motion, time-lapse, computer-generated imagery, and found footage, the film tells of a world that has completed the transition from the natural to the artificial. Globalization has been accomplished, all of our interactions are technologically mediated, and all images are manipulated. From this (virtual) reality, Reggio sculpts a frenetic yet ruminative portrait of an era in which the cacophony of "communication" has rendered humankind effectively postlanguage"--Container
