NOFF Adds New Titles to Lineup Films to screen at 24th Annual New Orleans Film Festival October 10th-17th
The New Orleans Film Society has announced five additional titles to this year’s lineup, including the U.S. premiere of the new film Visitors from acclaimed director Godfrey Reggio.
Best known for his celebrated Qatsi trilogy (including Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi), Reggio, a New Orleans native, shot some of the film in the New Orleans area. Similar to the Qatsi films, Visitors has no dialogue but features a rich score composed by his collaborator Philip Glass.
August: Osage County, the film version of Tracy Letts’s Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name. The film features an all-star cast, including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Juliette Lewis.
