I'm going to see this tomorrow night at the Dochouse in London.
"With unprecedented access to the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the military, and experts from leading space agencies, The Visit explores an event that has never in fact occurred - our first encounter with intelligent life from space. 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? - the film embarks on a journey beyond a terrestrial perspective, revealing the fears, hopes, and rituals of a species forced not only to confront alien life forms, but also its own self-image."
