Even more pertinent today, then when it was released 20 years ago, the film, whose title means “life out of balance,” is an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two different worlds: urban lifestyle and technology versus the environment. With a haunting musical score by Phillip Glass, the film presents a metaphor for modern life which is increasingly alienated from nature which is seen as just a resource to be subjugated to serve technology and our human needs. (87 mins) Winner of numerous awards.
