Yesterday, the first batch of 2013 TIFF titles dropped sending cinephiles into a frenzied excitement with a pretty killer lineup, with many now wondering how many extra days they can stay in Toronto this year. And the advance looks continue to roll out, as today a new trailer has arrived for one of the more intriguing question marks of the forthcoming fest.
Godfrey Reggio, the man behind the acclaimed “Koyaanisqatsi, “Powaqqatsi” and “Naqoyqatsi” has a new movie to show off entitled “Visitors,” and it looks like it could be his most challenging yet. Bold visuals and a score by Philip Glass are once again key components, but it now features actual performers, staged scenes and more. Plus, Steven Soderbergh — whose had some effusive things to say about the movie — has put his name to the effort with a “presented by” title. Here’s the official synopsis:
Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, with support from Philip Glass and Jon Kane, Godfrey Reggio’s portrayal of modern life in Visitors leapfrogs beyond earth-bound filmmakers. Presented by Steven Soderbergh, Visitors offers an experience of technology and transcendental emotionality, taking viewers to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.
Watch the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be in the rush line for this one.
