Check out this trailer for Visitors, the new wordless documentary from director Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, Naqoyqatsi). Now, this is definitely what you consider an “art” film. You’ll find this trailer either boring as hell, or strangely fascinating. If you are familiar with Reggio’s work then you won’t be surprised. Either way, a score by Philip Glass is always welcome. Presented by Steven Soderbergh.

“Visitors” reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species.

Enjoy?

Official Synopsis for Visitors:

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 black and white 4K digital projection, “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 seventy-four shots, “Visitors” takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.

No release date as yet.
