I’ve always been a huge admirer of Godfrey Reggio’s film and not only his film but in a way all films and the things that films do. We’re very much at the pre-production stage and the script still needs a couple of rewrites. But we hope to stay close to the original. At least in spirit.
But the original didn’t have a script, or story, or any characters as such.
That’s one way of looking at it. Yes. But I think our take is going to do the same thing – talk about the fractured nature of modern American existence – but by different means.
What different means?

You’ve read the script?
Koyaanisqatsi will be released in 2016.
