THE VISIT is a creative documentary that poses the question, what would happen if we were to be visited by a being from another world.
For over a century, human kind have been dreaming of the day we would see the arrival of aliens to our humble world. THE VISIT presents this hypothetical scenario to experts from around the world who have already dedicated their lives to preparing for such an event.
The Visit is a new film by Michael Madsen, one of Europe’s most interesting conceptual artists and filmmakers. Michael has made it his trade to make art projects and films about scientific, existential and philosophical subjects. He creates an alternative reality on film and gives the viewer profound experiences that make them question the core of our very existence. His film ’Into Eternity’ was theatrically released in 15 countries, had TV-distribution in many more, and took home 18 international awards.
