Godfrey Reggio’s task will be to provoke those present to consider the most misunderstood and consequential subject of the last 5,000 years: the Technological Environment. Technology is not something we use; it is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. Though seeing, we are blind to its presence, hidden in plain sight. For those willing to “take a walk on the wild side,” we will explore how we see the world through language, how our languages no longer describe the world in which we live, and how through the lens of outsider cinema we may approach this untellable subject. The focus is speechless narrative, not a story to be told, but rather a story to behold. In a syntax of the eye, the form is cinematic poetry. Godfrey Reggio invites you to join him on this journey to the vivid unknown.
