Director Godfrey Reggio's experimental documentary will arrive on Blu-ray in June, and you can pre-order the disc now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinedigm is preparing 'Visitors' for Blu-ray on June 10.
'Visitors' is the fourth collaboration of director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass together with filmmaker Jon Kane, advancing the film form pioneered by 'The Qatsi Trilogy' ('Koyaanisqatsi,' 'Powaqqatsi,' and 'Naqoyqatsi'): the non-spoken narrative experience where each viewer's response is radically different yet undeniably visceral. As Reggio explains, 'Visitors' is aimed at the solar plexus, at the appetite within us all, the atmosphere of our soul. I see the film as a meditation, as a transcendental event. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, a series of human, animal and landscape portraits, 'Visitors' takes movie watchers on an emotional journey to the moon and back. As a wondrous work of artistic achievement...art with a capital A (Austin Chronicle), 'Visitors' produces massive effects and moves into a class of film all its own.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: Interviews with Godfrey Reggio, Jon Kane, Philip Glass, Steven Soderbergh; Trailers; and The Making of Visitors (VICE/The Creators Project).
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is $34.95.
