USA, 2013, 87 Minute Running Time
Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, writer, producer and director Godfrey Reggio—with the support of composer Philip Glass and editor, producer and associate director Jon Kane—once again leapfrogs over earth-bound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh in black and white digital projection, Visitors reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. The film is visceral, offering the audience an experience beyond information about the moment in which we live. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, Visitors takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.
DIRECTOR: Godfrey Reggio
