Visitors

Was thrilled to attend the Australian Premiere of Visitors as part of Sydney Festival 2014. Canyons, a few days previous, had put me in a rapturous mood, anticipating this event a great deal.

Visitors is a documentary film written and directed by experimental documentary filmmaker Godfrey Reggio in collaboration with Phillip Glass and Jon Kane. The film itself depicting mainly emotive human faces, derelict buildings & locations and eerie scenes had quite a sombre theme to it. Sydney Symphony Orchestra performed Glass' typical minimalist full orchestral score.
