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. Visitors reveals humanity’s trance like 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.

FILM REVIEW "It will puzzle viewers, but that's part of its game; director Godfrey Reggio - famous for the Qatsi trilogy of wordless documentaries, has said his idea was to make a film that watches you." Chris Knight -Post Media News, published in the Edmonton Journal

FILM REVIEW "While keeping Glass in the mix, Visitors is a departure for the Qatsi films in that it is black and white and prominently features people, not in blurred masses but rather in ultra-crisp close-up." Josef Braun -VUE Weekly
