Maybe the majority of people haven't seen it. I aquired it from PBS Los Angeles, back in 1984
it's a really excellent travel, the camera takes you from the mountains to the city, and the music
provided by Phillip Glass is elevating. What PBS did was have a simulcast with KCRW so you could hear the soundtrack in stereo. It was very nice.

This film put a face on an uncomfortable feeling that had been working inside me for a long time but that I could not really define.
In an interview the director said that he wanted to show people the greatest change/revolution of the last century, which had in fact gone by unnoticed: mankind has exchanged his natural environment for a mechanical one. It's a thought I find deeply disturbing.
The film taught me to take life easier and more slowly. I don't want to be one of those commuters caught in the rat race to and from work. I try to live my life along the seasons and I'm very grateful I have a job that allows me to do so (as a teacher there's plenty of time to take a break and feel the cycle of the years as they evolve).
From time to time I discuss nature and ecology in my classes. This is one film my pupils are definitely going to see!
