The Visit

Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway
2014 — 83' / Color



“This film documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space”. With unprecedented access to the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the military, and experts from leading space agencies, the film explores a first contact scenario, beginning with the simplest of questions: Why are you here? How do you think? What do you see in humans that we don’t see in ourselves? A journey beyond a terrestrial perspective, revealing the fears, hopes, and rituals of a species forced not only to confront alien life forms, but also its own self image.
