Godfrey Reggio’s ‘Visitors’ Acquired By Cinedigm For North America

Black-and-white film explores humanity-technology relationship

Cinedigm has acquired all North American distribution rights to “Visitors,” the non-spoken narrative film from director Godfrey Reggio, composer Philip Glass and filmmaker Jon Kane.

Steven Soderbergh is presenting the black-and-white film, which will be shown in 4K projection. “Visitors” explores humanity’s trance-like relationship with technology and its effects beyond the human species.

It’s the fourth collaboration between Reggio and Glass, following the Qatsi Trilogy formed by “Koyaanisqatsi,” “Powaqqatsi” and “Naqoyqatsi.”

Cinedigm plans to release “Visitors” theatrically in the fall following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The TIFF screening will include a live performance of Glass’s score by members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

“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.”

The deal was negotiated by Cinedigm’s Emily Rothschild with Larry Taub representing the filmmakers.
