Drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning "life out of balance," this renowned documentary reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature, an apocalyptic vision of the collision of two different worlds — urban life and technology versus the environment. Featuring a musical score composed by Philip Glass, this is the first film of the legendary The Qatsi Trilogy. Viewed in the Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium.

If we accept that human beings are part of nature, not separate from it, how do we bring human nature to bear in a positive way on our built environment? The symposium will bring together poet Cole Swensen, biologist John Marzluff, and visual-environmental artist Mel Chin to consider these questions. The symposium is co-directed by University of Utah professors Katharine Coles (English) and Frederick Adler (biology and mathematics). Registration is suggested.
