A time, a place, a civilization. - 20-22
20-22 clearly is in the manner of Cinema Pur going up-stream from conventional cinema... The remarkable scope of the locations with people pixelated in rhythm to the soothing-hum of the machine. Given the form of a visual speechless narrative, we all see a different picture-ambiguity, is its clarity. - Godfrey Reggio
20-22 is a nonverbal nonfiction film project exploring the new epoch of planet Earth's history, that is the Anthropocene and its protagonists, the Posthumans.




Consisting of a series of films, project 20-22 released in 2015 its first film 20-22: ALPHA which offers a kaleidoscopic cinematic journey and an introduction to the human-centric world of the Anthropocene. The second film 20-22: OMEGA is now in post-production and will offer an indepth study and further exploration of that world, seemingly futuristic and unearthly, yet familiar.








20-22: ALPHA is the first film released in 2015 by project 20-22.

20-22 ALPHA Trailer 1

Trailer One of 20-22: ALPHA
About 10,000 years ago the last Ice Age finally ended. The climate soon came to resemble our own climate today, providing a sound platform for human development. Rather than moving about, man began shaping his own environment to meet his needs.

Today we are living in a new millennium world, of accelerated change, unimaginable possibilities and complex uncertainties. The films of project 20-22 cinematically explores the Anthropocene age of the Posthumans. Altogether combined, the 20-22 films deliver a unique cinematic odyssey of moving images and music into the human-centric world.
Filming for project 20-22 involved more than 100 locations, shot over a 5-year period, on 85,000 ft of celluloid film. With this tremendous amount of compelling moving imagery captured on celluloid, the films of project 20-22 take the viewers into the far reaches of this futuristic yet familiar world, giving exclusive access to popular and rarely seen places, as well as fascinating events and revealing characters.
20-22 ALPHA Trailer 2

Trailer Two of 20-22: ALPHA
Being nonverbal and not relying on dialogue, the films of 20-22 are experiential documentaries transcending the human language to offer a pure-cinematic and sensorial experience beyond verbal information. Shot with a classic motion picture technology such as the Bolex H16 Rex5 camera and Kodak’s Black and White celluloid.
20-22 clearly is in the manner of Cinema Pur going up-stream from conventional cinema... The remarkable scope of the locations with people pixelated in rhythm to the soothing-hum of the machine. Given the form of a visual speechless narrative, we all see a different picture-ambiguity, is its clarity. - Godfrey Reggio








20-22: OMEGA is the upcoming second film of project 20-22.
The films of 20-22 are non-verbal experiential documentaries going beyond traditional verbal storytelling. As the second film, 20-22: OMEGA (in post-production) is doing an in-depth study and further exploration of the human world and experience in the Anthropocene age: a new geological epoch in which humankind has developed significantly and is changing the course of the Earth system.
20-22 OMEGA Trailer 1

Trailer One of 20-22: OMEGA
While the first film 20-22: ALPHA offers a kaleidoscopic and visceral cinematic experience of its subject, 20-22: OMEGA is a cinematic odyssey, expanding upon the themes of and going beyond the places seen in the first film and further unveiling this new millennium world; a human-centric world of accelerated change, unimaginable possibilities and complex uncertainties. Completion in 2016/17.
