Director Godfrey Reggio has said that he makes films so different from anything else you've seen, they are like a cat that barks. His latest is called VISITORS and it's a stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. It's a study of humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology and the massive effects that reach far beyond the human species. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, VISITORS takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.

Godfrey Reggio will join Doug Fabrizio on RadioWest, Wednesday, February 12.

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
