[Godfrey Reggio, 2013, USA, 87 min.]

“The word for this film is transfixing.”- New York Times

“Godfrey Reggio’s movie “Visitors” will turn your casual trip to the cinema into something rather extraordinary. You won’t know what hit you. Seriously, it’s that unique.” — Urban Times

Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, 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 Black and White digital 4K projection, Visitors reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. An installment of the Filmatic Slow Art Series, this film is a visceral 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.
