If this doesn’t sound like a fourth film in Godfrey Reggio’s Qatsi series, I don’t know what does.
All joking aside, Variety reports that Reggio’s latest film, Visitors, has been nabbed up by Cinedigm. The company have picked up the North American distribution rights to the film, which features a score from Philip Glass, and is a non-narrative film that is a meditation on man’s relationship with technology.
Sounding right in step with Reggio’s Qatsi films, this documentary sounds immensely intriguing, and will debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The first film announced for that festival’s lineup, the screening will also feature a live performance of the score, making that as much a must-attend screening as you’ll find. While I wasn’t too hot on Reggio’s third film, Naqoyqatsi, this sounds rather exciting, and something right up the alley of every person involved here. Hopefully it will live up to the hype.
