METRODOME ANNOUNCES 21st JULY HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE DATE FOR

VISITORS

STEPHEN SODERBERGH PRESENTS

DIRECTED BY GODFREY REGGIO (KOYAANISQATSI) WITH A SCORE BY PHILLIP GLASS

Famous for the Qatsi trilogy of Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi, names taken from the Hopi language, director Godfrey Reggio has made another exquisite visual poem in Visitors, his first film in over a decade.

If the Qatsi trilogy reflected on ideas of balance, transformation, and war, Visitors asks a very different question: Who and what is a visitor when we look around ourselves on this planet? Using this idea as a metaphysical departure for his visual reverie, Reggio takes us on a unique voyage into the mysteries and wonders of the universe.

Shot in dazzling black and white, the film proves once again that Reggio is a visual genius, open to the magic of experience, masterly at editing his images into a work that calls upon its audiences to find their own meaning in the piece. More akin to music than narrative storytelling, Visitors creates moods and tones, allowing each of us to explore potential connections and associations. At times we enter an almost dreamlike state — notably with Reggio’s meditation on human hands, as expressive as faces, interacting with technological tools (touchscreens, keyboards) that have been removed from the frame. The effect is mesmerizing, and Glass’s score is a perfect complement.

Release date: 21st July 2014
