Cult favorite film, juxtaposing the farce of "development" and nature, brought to you by director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass. It's quite a phenomena, the whole development line pushed by globalists, corporations, and "the world is flatters." There's some logic missing with the whole notion of sustainability and the fact that Earth is a closed system. Take fracking for example, something that steals health, livelihoods, and safety from people and environments now and in the future, but somehow people justify it as okay because of terrorism and oil depletion and it is "the way of the future." How can something be the way of the future if it threatens the system on which the future depends? Simple answer, it is probably something to be avoided.
