Meetup Description: This event is being organized by Ecolocity ( http://ecolocity.ning.com ) and Emergence Community Arts Collective (http://www.ecacollective.com ).

To get to this place by driving, you have to enter from Sherman ave. Euclid ave is one way between Sherman and Georgia. The building is across from Banneker High, less than a hundred yards from Georgia ave. Walking distance (15 min) from Columbia hts metro. Also 79 bus from Gallery place will take you there quickly.

Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance, is a 1982 film directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke.

The film consists primarily of slow motion and time-lapse photography of cities and many natural landscapes across the United States. The visual tone poem contains neither dialogue nor a vocalized narration: its tone is set by the juxtaposition of images and music. In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means 'crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance, life disintegrating, a state of life that calls for another way of living', and the film implies that modern humanity is living in such a way.

The film is the first in the Qatsi trilogy of films: it is followed by Powaqqatsi (1988) and Naqoyqatsi (2002). The trilogy depicts different aspects of the relationship between humans, nature, and technology. Koyaanisqatsi is the best known of the trilogy and is considered a cult film.

Suggested donation $5

We can go for coffee in Adams Morgan afterwards, if people want.
