Watch: Steven Soderbergh Presents Godfrey Reggio's 'Visitors' Trailer
The filmmaker behind Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi returns this year with his latest feature. This one is called Visitors, and it's being presented by Steven Soderbergh at the Toronto Film Festival this fall featuring a live performance of Philip Glass' score by Members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. The first trailer is out and it's rather odd, with the camera panning across the faces of numerous people. The concept: "Visitors offers an experience of technology and transcendental emotionality, taking viewers to the moon and back to confront them with themselves." If you like the Qatsi trilogy, you'll want to see this.
Here's the latest promo trailer for Godfrey Reggio's new film Visitors, found on YouTube:
Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, Godfrey Reggio—with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane—once again leapfrogs over earthbound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh in stunning B&W 4K, 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 74 shots, Visitors takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves. Cinedigm will distribute after Visitors premieres at TIFF.
That was the most boring trailer of the year... shit I actually yawned...

Apparently "technology and transcendental emotionality" is some kind of code for suicide-inducing boredom . . . BAM!

This looks like it's going to be the, "You just didn't get it! It went over your head!" film of the year.
