    ...the taster is superb and I can't wait to watch the whole thing. Then again I loved films like Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, Baraka, and the like...

    Might find more folks buying intervalometers for their compacts and using those silly movie functions less :wink:

    Thank you! I loved Baraka (and Chronos) and I love the music of Michael Stearns. A good find. And funny enough, I learned of this film today at work.

    Wow, that looks incredible. I'll keep an eye out for it! And yeah, Koyaanisqatsi blew me away when I saw it in college - would love to see it again on the big screen.

    yep Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi lover too.
    Saw Powaqqatsi at the Barbican Theatre with the orchestra playing live in front of the screen,

    Breathtaking. Thanks for posting.

    Have any of you seen this site, Symphony of Science? I think it is also thought provoking.

    What an amazing piece of work that puts human life in true perspective but also emphasizes our interaction and fascination with the elements.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm intent on buying. I'll probably go with a hard copy rather than a downloadable...
