Land Sea Sky Film Series
Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time, is an extraordinary journey into the world of Scottish sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, a land-artist who uses materials from nature to make site-specific works.

The first in the Qatsi trilogy, Koyaanisqatsi, directed by Godfrey Reggio, takes its title from the Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of balance." The film is an apocalyptic vision of the clashing of two different worlds—urban life and technology versus the environment. Powaqqatsi is a record of diversity and transformation, of cultures dying and prospering. Naqoyqatsi plunges into the hyper-accelerated, globally wired 21st Century.

Director Jacques Perrin’s Winged Migration is a film dedicated to birds and their displacements according to the seasons.
