Made in 1982, directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass, long before "sustainability" gained its modern meaning, the title is a Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of balance". The film comprises amazing images (with amazing music) of the world without mankind, and the madness of what we do to it. It is pretty much a film about sustainability, without maybe being intended as such. There is no script, and there are no actors. It's brilliant.
Thank you! Here is the link for this movie and description:
