Godfrey Reggio

Godfrey Reggio (born March 29, 1940) is a United States director of experimental documentary films. Born and raised in southwest Louisiana, he is most known for his Qatsi trilogy, which includes the films Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi. Reggio spent fourteen years in training to be a monk before abandoning that path and making the films; he has since been involved in many progressive political causes in the United States, including work for the American Civil Liberties Union. Cinematographer on most of his films is Ron Fricke, who directed the film Baraka.
