The Visit documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space. With unprecedented access to space and military experts from the UN and Nasa, among others, the lm builds up a chillingly believable scenario of alien contact on Earth. The implications unfold within a mind-bending landscape of everyday sights and sounds turned bizarre, as if seen through the eyes of a life form exploring our planet.
Michael Madsen takes viewers on a journey beyond their terrestrial perspective and into the unknown, revealing the fears and hopes of our species, forced to confront aliens and its own image.
