The title is a native American Hopi word meaning crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance, life disintegrating, a state of life that calls for another way of living, and that is the only word heard (as a chant) in this 90 minute film from 1982 which features an absorbing and dazzling series of both time lapse and slow motion scenes from nature and manmade existance, all accompanied by a organ / electronic keyboard soundtrack.
