The director of visitors has done it again and took the filming to next level in creating a wordless documentary of modern life. Reggio is famous for making such films and experimenting with the viewers every now and then. This artistic yet silent portrayal of technology and mankind controlling that technology is epic and will keep many interested in the movie without a word uttered throughout the feature.
According to the presenter it will be presented in projections comprising of 4000 pixels as compared to 1000 pixels in HD. The film is based on various shots of people from different ages doing something technology related and especially their faces are focused. On one hand the close-ups of youthful faces will depict the passion in their eyes that are so much involved in watching something on tv or playing a gaming console. While on the other hand the close-ups of the old folks depicts the displeasure in their eyes as they are not that much involved in technology.
The film also includes some shots of the moon that were timely taken and time lapsed into a set of amazing shots. Surprisingly this film involves a lot of editing in almost every frame. From blurring out the screens to burring out the background editing has been massively used. This has made most of the film to be unidentifiable apart from the faces that are focused. The film is presented in two colors that is black and white which according to Reggio is the perfect way to portray the stupor like relationship between man and the technology.
The visitors is an unusual film as one may say among the new releases movies and still nobody can anticipate the viewer comments on this feature however as interesting as the idea may sound this has alarmed a lot directors as it may evolve into a totally new era of still motion filming.
