Introducing

Koyaanisqatsi, this breathtakingly beautiful feature film, is a profoundly humanistic questioning of the evolution of our civilisation. Originally set to the music of Phlipp Glass, it is here set to music by the DJ duo RadioMentale, who bring a new electronic breath and techno energy to this classic visual and travelling film, thanks to tracks by Monolake, Trentemøller, …

Synopsis

Halfway between documentary and visual art, Koyaanisqatsi is a landmark in the cinematic history of the last twenty years and has particularly influenced the new generation of VJs and visual artists of the electronic scene. Often imitated, never equalled, this first part of the trilogy directed by Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqatsi, Naqoyqatsi), produced by Francis Ford Coppola, is undoubtedly the most successful and memorable of the series.

Additional information

What is a cinemix? Since the early 2000s, the Cinémix trend in France has become very popular, thanks to the many electronic musicians and DJs who have been invited to give a new live interpretation of silent films. The duo RadioMentale are among the pioneers and inventors of the genre. In the talking films they take over, they reinterpret the film live, creating a new soundtrack while keeping the original dialogue. In a way, the duo proposes another reading of the film which, without altering its narrative, brings a new dimension to it, both original and personal, and of course more willingly sonorous.
