This family-oriented French sci-fi comedy chronicles her adventures on the chaotic planet. Mila is 150 years old and has five children; encoded in her brain are two telepathic programs designed to restructure the thinking of destructive humans.

There will be a screening of documentary film Koyaanisqatsi – Life Out of Balance (1982) hosted by Transition Galway starting at 7pm this Friday, 26th October. Entry is by donation, and will go towards the redesign of our new space. All are welcome!
An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental political agenda. Without a story, dialogue, or characters, Koyaanisqatsi (1983) (the film’s title is a Hopi word roughly translated into English as “life out of balance”) is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet.
Time: 1 hr. 27 min.
Directed By: Godfrey Reggio
