Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
A fusion of indigenous rhythms, spoken word, and images from around the world, 1 Giant Leap is a visual journey captained by a host of influential artists. Musican-filmmakers Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman toured the globe, from Kenya to India to Australia, overlaying their footage with provocative sounds and narration from such artists as Michael Stipe, Kurt Vonnegut, Tim Robbins, and Dennis Hopper. The result is a 12-chapter meditation on humanity's place in the cosmos, confronting topics as varied as sex, God, money, and time. 1 Giant Leap is the latest contribution to a still-nascent filmmaking genre, which includes Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, as well as Ron Fricke's Baraka, each of which documents the universality of the human condition. For anyone seeking a new perspective on our surroundings, set to a worthy collection of international music, look no further.
