Chronos (1985)

Carefully picked scenes of nature and civilization are viewed at high speed using time-lapse cinematography in an effort to demonstrate the history of various regions.

Could just be seen as a dry run for Fricke's follow up, the epic and hugely successful Baraka, but that would be to sell short the extraordinary effort that went into creating this shorter work and some of the gorgeous time lapse imagery (Monument Valley is particularly well shot, also the antiquities of ancient Egypt, and the nightscapes of Los Angeles and New York City) in the IMAX 70mm format. Well worth watching in the whole sequence with Fricke's latest Samsara.
