Film Fest Gent: Videodroom - ‘Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance’
Chantal Acda & Eric Thielemans - Kunstencentrum Vooruit

Program Info:
New ritual soundtrack for cult documentary

"Koyaanisqatsi" in the Hopi language means "to live in madness, in turmoil." The eponymous legendary 1982 film with music by Philip Glass is, after "Solaris" and "The Shining", the third classic during VIDEODROOM that is more applicable than ever for these times. The hypnotic documentary by director Godfrey Reggio will be screened in its entirety, with specially composed live music by Chantal Acda (Isbells, Marble Sounds) and Vooruit resident Eric Thielemans.

“When Chantal and I watched 'Koyaanisqatsi' during the lockdown after so many years,” says Thielemans, “we were overwhelmed by the combination of cinematographic and musical beauty, as well as the urgency and deeper references to climate change and the corona crisis. ” Acda and Thielemans will perform their musical version during VIDEODROOM, a way of ritually connecting with the original score.
