Join ASC-WA for a nerd night out with a film that plays with possibility of aliens arriving on the Earth, re-imagining both the documentary and science fiction experience: https://youtu.be/EkGG-L0wuVw
Best viewed as a speculative documentary, the film explores the notion of first contact through interviews with those who will be making the decisions should extraterrestrials arrive: the staff at UNOOSA (United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs), scientists, SETI and NASA employees, military experts, social psychologists, and various specialists. Describing the imaginary events, the interviewees explain how they would respond to the alien's arrival and, most intriguingly, what conversations they would initiate during first contact.
"Madsen's film is impressibly assembled with a combination of scientific research and philosophy that would make Stanley Kubrick proud." Smells Like Screen Spirit.
All are welcomed (just purchase tickets from the link) and feel free to join us afterwards for a banter with bite or a drink.
See you there!
