Visitors

visitorsposter-web Showtimes

Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, director Godfrey Reggio – with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane – once again leapfrogs over Earth-bound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh in stunning 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, and more akin to music than narrative storytelling, Visitors is a visual reverie that takes viewers on a mesmerizing journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves. (Dir. by Godfrey Reggio, 2013, USA, 87 mins., Not Rated, Cinedigm) Digital
