RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Visitors

Godfrey Reggio

Godfrey Reggio’s films aren’t made of the things that compose most movies. They don’t have plots, or narrative structures, or even characters. Instead, his films fuse images with the minimalist music of composer Phillip Glass to, as Reggio says, take the viewer on a journey, the destination of which is inconsequential. Reggio joins us Wednesday to talk about his unique approach to documentary film and to discuss his newest film, Visitors, which explores our evolving relationship with technology.

On Wednesday, February 19, RadioWest and The Utah Film Center will present a free screening of VISITORS, and Reggio will join Doug for a Q&A immediately following the film. The event is at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It begins at 7:00 p.m., but you should arrive early to get a seat. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, click here.
