Godfrey Reggio - Anima Mundi - The Soul of the World

"Anima Mundi is a film about animals. It contains no actors, has not plot and has no script. Anima Mundi was created by Godfrey Reggio who also created Koyaanisqatsi.

"Anima Mundi was commissioned by the Italian jewellery company Bvlgari, for the World Wide Fund for Nature which used the film for its Biological Diversity Program. The breathtaking images of nature where intended to make the viewer feel that they where part of the natural world. Philip Glass provided the musical score in Anima Mundi, as with all of Godfrey Reggio's films.

"The concept of the term Anima Mundi is that the order and beauty of nature are made of the almost endless species and varieties of animals, elements and beings that make a balanced whole. All of the shots in Anima Mundi relate to this though, rather than just being images of animals that one might find in a BBC documentary.

"The footage in Anima Mundi is made up of existing and newly shot footage. Only the finest existing footage was considered for the film. The score provides a good accompaniment to the animal scenes. Philip Glass often provides an unusual score, as is the case with Anima Mundi. However the sounds and rhythms complement the film well."

The Last Aztec

"Booker prize-winning novelist DBC Pierre (Vernon God Little) takes a trip back to the Mexico of his youth to explore the downfall of the Aztecs - one of the greatest civilisations in history.

"Raised in Mexico by his English parents, Pierre has had a life-long obsession with the Aztecs. It was this obsession that once drove him into debt and dissolution. Now he sets out to revisit the Aztecs' epic tale of decline and conquest and hopefully finally lay his own ghosts to rest. Part historical film, part road movie, The Last Aztec follows him as he traces the advance of the Spanish conquistadors toward the Aztec capital."
