Godfrey Reggio/Philip Glass: Anima Mundi

Anima Mundi is similar to the two earlier collaborations of filmmaker Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass, a visual and aural feast of imagery that is pulled together in a way that makes a statement but also works as a piece of cinematic experimental art.

Koyaanisqatsi is the feature that launched this series, followed by the less successful Powaqqatsi. Anima Mundi, though shorter in length by two-thirds, shows Reggio and Glass are back on track, this time observing animals, fowl, fishes and other living organisms and micro-organisms in their natural habitats, often in closeups so startling that the audience may feel it is looking into a creature's soul.
