Things To Consider
- To me Powaqqatsi feels a bit more immediate and off the cuff than it’s predecessor. The imagery is less epic feeling and as a result things feel a bit more personal. It’s unclear whether this was a choice made by the filmmakers or a result of the film not being shot by Ron Fricke who has a knack for crafting large, sweeping and epic imagery.
- There is less shots just of nature as man has encroached in every possible area. Some shots display a degree of romanticism, man living in harmony with his surroundings, but more often than not the imagery deals with the harsh, dirty realities of our expansion.
