Film Screening of Godfrey Reggio’s Naqoyqatsi
The mission of the New York Public Library is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. We engage with the public through exploratory conversation via our vast collection of books and media, as well as through our rich program offerings.
In conjunction with the New Museum’s IDEAS CITY 2013, the Mulberry Street Branch of New York Public Library is pleased to offer a free screening of the film Naqoyqatsi. The third in the QATSI documentary trilogy, Naqoyqatsi bears as its title the Hopi word meaning “life as war.” Using stunning time-lapse cinematography along with a score by composer Philip Glass, the director focuses his lens on the technology revolution and provides a provocative look at the use and misuse of the Earth’s resources. Please join us for the screening, which will be followed by a brief discussion of the film.
