In his fourth major collaboration with noted composer Philip Glass, American filmmaker Godfrey Reggio presents a wordless exploration of humanity's relationship with technology.
The evocative Visitors, which is scored by Glass, premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and screened with live accompaniment provided by members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
Comprised of 74 shots, the film plays with faster and slower speeds and features close-ups of both individual faces and various places around the globe.
"This film is not aimed at the cerebellum. It's not aimed at your intellect. It’s aimed at your viscera. It's not to tell you a story, it's to give you a story to behold. You fill out what it means," the monk-turned-experimental documentary-maker told CBC News.
