you can’t really blame kids who find a 90 minute session of immersion in a past generation’s art boring. Repetitive music and trippy visuals have advanced quite a bit since then, so they might have to become a bit older to appreciate what Koyaanisqatsi actually is.
Maybe explaining how Koyaanisqatsi was a major influence for “modern” music videos like Gosh, Lorn’s Anvil, All Corrupt Everything or No Safety in a Body (which contains footage from Fricke’s Samsara), Max Cooper’s Repetition and Perpetual Motion and also Forrest Sword’s Crow helps them make the connection?
Or you could just hand them a spliff.
I was very surprised that a simple DDG search showed me 3 (!) links to the full movie. I always wanted to watch Fata Morgana to learn about Popol Vuh, so I guess this is my chance. The narrator takes a bit getting used to, though.
