Godfrey Reggio’s First Movie in Eleven Years Has a Title That Isn’t in Hopi

I saw Koyaanisqatsi in its initial Santa Fe run. I’ve seen it dozens of times since, and it delivers a gut punch every time. I’ve seen Powaqqatsi a few times, although I think its score completely overshadows the actual film. And Naqoyqatsi, for whatever reason, I’ve never made it all the way through. Maybe that’s because I was knee-deep in hobbits at the time. I dunno. But the Toronto Film Festival is gonna be landfall for Reggio’s newest film, called Visitorsqatsi. Sorry, no. Just Visitors. I can’t say I know much about it, but from what the trailer tells us, I’ve got a feeling that it’s got people in it. And that it’s going to be fantastic. From Variety:

“I’m thrilled and honored to act as presenter of ‘Visitors,’ which is the definition of a must-see event for anyone who loves cinema,” Soderbergh said. “Thirty years after ‘Koyaanisqatsi,’ Godfrey Reggio–with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane–once again leapfrogs over us earth-bound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life.”
