Koyaanistocksi

Koyaanistocksi

Pittsburgh-based Jesse England just released a reconstruction of the trailer for 1982 documentary Koyaanisqatsi. The documentary was directed by Godfrey Reggio with cinematography by Ron Fricke (who went on to direct the awesome Samsara). And while Reggio’s biography at the time said he was more “interested in the impact of the media in conveying ideas rather than promoting commodities,” Jesse has remade the original trailer shot-by-shot with watermarked stock footage that’s currently available to buy.

In Jesse’s words, it’s “a testament to Reggio’s influence on contemporary motion photography, and the appropriation of his aesthetic by others for commercial means.” Absolutely.
