Private Project


“Human beings, since ancient times, have asked themselves whether there are forms of extraterrestrial life or evolved intelligence in the cosmos and how they could be contacted.
The film tries to change the point of view and asks how an intelligence, coming from another planet, could
perceive, observe or even threaten the human presence on Earth.
The logical-narrative and visual-sound path develops in five independent chapters: the viewer is called to
find the keys and interpret the movie pictures.
The soundtrack is composed of extracts from the Voyager golden record, noise from radio systems,
recordings of sounds from the Universe, a song altered by interference and spatial distance, sounds coming
from Nature and an techno version of overture “Fidelio”/Beethoven. They are as disturbing, as the alien
offers to the imaginary of science fiction cinema”.

“Universe looks at itself in the mirror from other universes, shapes are aware of themselves in different shapes. Every act of thought travels in Time, shortening the distances of far away points in Space."
