Sundance 2015: The Visit

sundance_the_visit.jpg

Ever since the invention of radio and television, humans have been sending signals into outer space, announcing their existence to other civilizations and waiting for a reply, waiting for contact with intelligent extraterrestrial life. In a new documentary called The Visit, Danish filmmaker Michael Madsen constructs a believable scenario of first contact on Earth. Ultimately, the film is an exploration of humanity’s fear of strangers and the unknown. Madsen joins us Wednesday to talk about it.

The Visit is screening in the 2015 Sundance Film Festival World Documentary Competion section. Screening times are:

Thursday, 1/29 at 10:00 p.m., Redstone Cinema 2

Friday, 1/30 at 11:59 p.m., Tower Theatre

Saturday, 1/31 at 11:30 a.m., Holiday Village Cinema 1
