From the Library:

On February 15, “Koyaanisqatsi”, a film by director Godfrey Reggio, will be shown. How do you tell a story without any words, characters or plot? This groundbreaking film takes the audience from outer space to untouched desert beauty to the bustle of Las Vegas. Translated as “Life out of balance “ in the Hopi language, Koyaanisqatsi’s experimental ride is accompanied by a soundtrack by Philip Glass. Recommended for ages 11 and up.

On March 15, “ A Trip to the Moon” and “The Lost World” take us back to the beginning days of filmmaking – and science fiction. Georges Méliès’ classic tale of space travel from 1902 is paired with this precursor to Jurassic Park from 1925, in gloriously restored black and white. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

April 26 brings cult classic “Fantastic Planet” to the library. Hand drawn stop-action animation is used to tell the story of humans who are pets to 40 foot aliens. A groovy soundtrack and some weighty themes give this film from 1973 a long-lasting reach. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
