Director Godfrey Reggio will join us via Skype after the Thursday, 11/9 afternoon screening for a special Q&A.
“All mood, all rhythm, with a kaleidoscope structure and undulating ever-shifting visuals in a constant state of flux.”
—Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com
“The film proposes that, in the search for viable alternatives to techno-fascism and climate apocalypse, we might look to the margins of our world, to unfulfilled experiments (including those of cinema) and cultures supposedly left behind by history.”
—William Repass, Slant
Celebrated director Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi) returns after ten years with a new experimental film, scored by his longtime collaborator Philip Glass. ONCE WITHIN A TIME is unlike any other from his already daring career: a bardic fairy tale about the end of the world and the beginning of a new one, tinged with apocalyptic comedy, rapturous cinematography, unforgettable vistas, and the innocence and hopes of a new generation.
