A film by Michael Madsen

“This film documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with
intelligent life from space”.

Ever since the invention of radio, humans have been sending signals into space, announcing their existence to other civilizations. 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?

THE VISIT is 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.

Reflecting on the past 15+ months of pandemic, SPACE wants to highlight the amazing recipients of our 2020 Maine Visual Artist Emergency Relief Grants and Maine Musician Relief Grants. Explore these lists to learn more about the wellspring of artists and creative thought leaders in our state.
