TSS KK Film Night: Powaqqatsi, 18th Nov 2014

PowaqqatsiPowaqqatsi – Life in Transformation       USA,  Documentary, Music

[ Approx screening time: 99 mins ]

Synopsis: Powaqqatsi is a Hopi word meaning “parasitic way of life” or “life in transition”. Powaqqatsi, which has no dialogue, focuses on the conflict in third world countries between traditional ways of life and the new ways of life introduced with industrialization. The film is strongly related to its soundtrack, written by Philip Glass. Here, human voices (especially children’s and mainly from South America and Africa) appear in harmony with the film’s message and images. This is one of three experimental films by Godfrey Reggio.

It’s on the Tuesday, 18th November 2014 at  the Secretariat Office, Damai Plaza. The movie will start at 8.00 pm sharp.

For non-members, a  nominal fee of RM10 will be charged as a one-night membership to The Sabah Society and for current members of the Sabah Society, the usual contribution to the Magic Box will assist in covering costs.

For further information, please contact The Secretariat on 088-250 443 or email at sabahsoc@gmail.com
