Steven Soderbergh presents VISITORS
A New Film by Godfrey Reggio, Philip Glass, and Jon Kane

"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. 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. It's a bold, beautiful, uniquely moving cinematic experience, and the live orchestra component is the proverbial cherry on top.”
Steven Soderbergh

"Music has always played second fiddle to the screen experience. But here, it is an equal partner."
Godfrey Reggio

“Glass’s score was thrillingly performed live by members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at the historic Elgin Theater, a jewel box meant for dreammaking."
Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald
