Michael Madsen “The above questions are examples of the aspects of my philosophical interest in the subject. However, I am also extremely interested in the purely practical matters involved in a potential Alien visit: What would we actually do? How would we receive them, treat them, teach them? Maybe the best proof of intelligent life in outer space is the fact that they have not yet come to Earth…”

Producer by Lise Lense-Møller (Magic Hour Films), “The Visit” is a scientific and philosophical feature documentary about Humankind’s approach to the unknown, explored through the hypothetical visit of alien intelligent life. The UN Office for Outer Space Affairs in Vienna, as well as leading scientists from NASA, ESA, and the International Space University (ISU) present their expertise, knowledge and insecurities about how to tackle such an event. The film builds up a chillingly believable scenario of first contact on Earth, 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?
