“Once Within a Time proposes that, in the search for viable alternatives to techno-fascism and climate apocalypse, we might look to the margins of our world, to unfulfilled experiments (including those of cinema) and cultures supposedly left behind by history. It’s still not too late to set ourselves on some other trajectory.” — Slant Magazine

After ten years, celebrated auteur Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi) returns with a bold new experimentation unlike anything we’ve seen in his already daring career: a bardic fairy tale about the end of the world and the beginning of a new one, tinged with apocalyptic comedy, rapturous cinematography, unforgettable vistas, and the innocence and hopes of a new generation.

Featuring an electrifying score composed by Reggio’s longtime collaborator Philip Glass, with additional vocals from Sussan Deyhim, and co-directed by veteran editor and filmmaker Jon Kane, Once Within a Time is the indie revelation of the year.
