The Qatsi trilogy is the informal name given to a series of three films produced by Godfrey Reggio and scored by Philip Glass:

The titles of all three films are words from the Hopi language, from which the word qatsi translates as "life." The producers are the Institute For Regional Education who also created the Fund For Change.[1][2]
