“THE VISIT: An Alien Encounter” Will Rendezvous With Digital, Cable and Satellite Platforms on October 6
First Film to Document Government And United Nations Planning for Actual Alien Landing on Earth
(Los Angeles, CA) Random Media and Alchemy are releasing “THE VISIT: An Alien Encounter” onDIGITAL HD, On Demand and Satellite Platforms on October 6th.
Directed by Michael Madsen, “THE VISIT: An Alien Encounter“ documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space.
With unprecedented access to the Director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs, experts from NASA, ISU (International Space University), SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial intelligence) Institute, and military advisors, “THE VISIT: An Alien Encounter” builds up a chillingly believable scenario of first contact on Earth.
The film begins with the simplest of questions posed to alien life forms: Why are you here? How do you think? The implications of an alien encounter unfold within a mind-bending landscape of everyday sights and sounds turned bizarre and extraordinary, as if seen through the eyes of a life form exploring our planet for the first time. “THE VISIT: An Alien Encounter” is also a journey from the human perspective, revealing the fears, hopes, and rituals of a species forced not only to confront alien life forms, but also its own self-image.
