Godfrey Reggio, The inventor of the visual-art film style which Spirit of Baraka celebrates.
Reggio is prominent in the film world for his QATSI trilogy, essays of visual images and sound which chronicle the destructive impact of the modern world on the environment.

Born in New Orleans in 1940 and raised in southwest Louisiana, Reggio entered the Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic pontifical order, at age 14.
He spent 14 years of his adolescence and early adulthood in fasting, silence, and prayer while studying to be a monk.

With the Qatsi Trilogy, Godfrey Reggio invented his own film style - which puts the emphasis on bringing audiences images of extraordinary emotional impact and thought-provoking relevance. Part essay, part image-and-music extravaganza, the three films chronicle the rapid evolution and astonishing impact of the modern world over the last few decades.Read more >>>
