"The stunningly photographed, often difficult, always transfixing film was not the most satisfying creation on display at TIFF, or for many cinemagoers, its most alluring. But it was without question its most important," correspondent Christopher Schobert wrote in his review of Godfrey Reggio's "Visitors" from Toronto last fall. "Here is a movie that defies simple interpretation and renders reviews—this one included—almost meaningless." And it's hardly a surprise the man behind the still influential trilogy "Koyaanisqatsi," "Powaqqatsi" and "Naqoyqatsi" has once again created a cinematic experience that is beyond words.

With a background in activism and religion, director Godfrey Reggio's filmography displays a deep concern for humanity, the footprint we leave on the world around us, and our interactions with nature, technology and each other. But his choice of polemic is largely visual, with his revered Qatsi trilogy of films choosing to voice its concerns purely through images, and the haunting scores by Philip Glass.

The world premiere of Qatsi trilogy director Godfrey Reggio’s long-awaited and eagerly anticipated “Visitors” provided the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival with something extraordinarily unique: its greatest cinematic experience. The stunningly photographed, often difficult, always transfixing film was not the most satisfying creation on display at TIFF, or for many cinemagoers, its most alluring. But it was without question its most important. Here is a movie that defies simple interpretation and renders reviews — this one included—almost meaningless. Booking Reggio’s first film in more than a decade was always going to make waves; his immaculately filmed, non-narrative Qatsi trilogy—“Koyaanisqatsi” (1982), “Powaqqatsi” (1988), and “Naqoyqatsi” (2002)—is rightfully ranked among the most important artistic achievements of the last thirty years. But that was just part of the excitement

Our heads (and in some cases, our actual bodies) are still in Cannes, but it's not long at all until the fall festival season starts off. And indeed, the Toronto International Film Festival aren't waiting for Cannes to wrap up to make their first announcement, as news has come in of a high-profile screening that, while it won't exactly be grabbing tabloid headlines, will certainly interest a certain kind of film fan very much indeed.
