  • The Visit
  • “This film documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space”.With unprecedented access to the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the military, and experts from leading space agencies, the film explores a first contact scenario, 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?  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.

  • The Chimpanzee Complex
  • The main characters are ‘humanized’ chimps, who after years in captivity must learn to live among their own species again. Many of them were taken from the wild at a very young age and never learned any practical or social skills as apes.
