Godfrey Reggio's Visitors Officially Announced for Blu-ray

Posted May 12, 2014 04:09 PM by Webmaster

CinedigmThirty years after their original collaboration for Koyaanisqatsi, filmmaker Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass create an artistic achievement in Visitors, arriving on Blu-ray combo pack, and DVD June 10 from Cinedigm. A stunning, wordless portrait of modern life, Visitors is presented by Steven Soderbergh, and was also produced by Jon Kane (Naqoyqatsi).

Featuring black and white digital projections and comprised of only 74 shots, Visitors reveals humanity's relationship with technology and its massive effects that reach far beyond the human species. A transcendent work that redefines the film medium, Visitors also features music by Glass performed by the Bruckner Orchester Linz. Visitors made its worldwide premiere at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.

Official synopsis: Visitors is the fourth collaboration of director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass now joined by filmmaker Jon Kane, advancing the film form pioneered by The Qatsi Trilogy (Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi): the non-spoken narrative experience where each viewer's response is radically different yet undeniably visceral. As Reggio explains, "Visitors is aimed at the solar plexus, at the appetite within us all, the atmosphere of our soul. I see the film as a meditation, as a transcendental event." Comprised of only seventy-four shots, a series of human, animal and landscape portraits, Visitors takes movie watchers on an emotional journey to the moon and back. As "a wondrous work of artistic achievement…art with a capital A" (Austin Chronicle), Visitors moves into a class of film all its own.

Note: In the United States, The Qatsi Trilogy is available on Blu-ray courtesy of The Criterion Collection. Click on the link to read our review.

They say the worst entry in a trilogy is the fourth one...

I can't wait...! Missed it in a theater -- I don't even know if it opened in one where I live?! -- but am a HUGE admirer of Reggio's film oeuvre.
