The Visit – An Alien Encounter

by Michael Madsen
83' | 2015 | Danmark, Austria, Irland, Finland, Norway

European premiere at Visions du Réel 2015 – International Competition for feature films

An event that has never taken place: man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space. With the help of the “UN Office for Outer Space Affairs” and experts from leading space agencies, the film explores a first contact scenario. A journey beyond a terrestrial perspective, revealing the fears, hopes, and rituals of a species forced to confront both alien life forms and its own self-image
