DIRECTOR: Godfrey Reggio - UNITED STATES

Thirty years after their groundbreaking Koyaanisqatsi (Qatsi trilogy), director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass have joined forces with associate director Jon Kane to create a cinematic time capsule for the 21st century. If the Qatsi trilogy reflected on ideas of balance, transformation, and war, Visitors asks a very different question: who and what is a visitor when we look around ourselves on this planet? Using this idea as a metaphysical departure for his visual reverie, Reggio takes us on a unique voyage into the mysteries and wonders of the universe. Shot in dazzling black and white, Reggio’s visual genius opens us to the magic of experience as it calls upon its audiences to find their own meaning. Through the mind-altering imagery and Glass’s hypnotic soundscapes, Visitors, more akin to music than narrative storytelling, provides a dazzling, wordless ode to modern life. (87 mins.)

Director Godfrey Reggio in attendance 2/10.

Filmography: Koyaanisqatsi (82), Powaqqatsi (88), Naqoyqatsi (02)
