Koyaanisqatsi – “Life Out of Balance” (BeT ♥ film #1)

February 15, 2012

Koyaanisqatsi – “Life Out of Balance”

Koyaanisqatsi is a 1982 film directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke.

This film will be screened on Thursday 16th February 2012 in Barcelona at CAT BAR at 20.30h. It will be the first film of the Barcelona en Transició ♥ HEART group.

“I saw this in a London cinema in Nov 1983, age 17. I’d no clue what it was going to be about -could have been a Rambo movie for all I knew. I just went along with my pals. Two hours later – back outside in the dank night – and my entire outlook, understanding and appreciation of music, nature, life, world – the way I saw everything just shifted and was never the same again.”

Streaming from the Gaff!

February 22, 2009

An experiment with streaming audio, projecting video and the interaction between real and virual worlds took place in Dublin’s new social centre

Back in 2005 we made a short 4 minute documentary video after our succesful streaming experiment to connect the Digital Hub with the Dublin social centre, seomra spraoi (room of play in Gaelic / native Irish) as part of the “future of digital media”.  The film is viewable on Archive.org

Although it was a successful stream, it did cause some contreversay within the Indymedia Ireland collective, but we were trying to push the boundaries of communication limits in the Network Age
