World Contact (excerpts)

World Contact (2004, 14 minutes, DV video, stereo)
Directed by Joshua Thorson
With John Kelly, Pat Palermo, Adam Reed, and Louis Colombo
Music by I Love You

Premiered at MoMA, "Premieres," 2005.

A UFO enthusiast tries to convince his peers that they need to promote and stage a global-scale event 
whereby all participants around the world send the same telepathic message of peace at the same time 
and use this message to establish contact with alien visitors. 

Based on the real events. The lyrics of the Klaatu song "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft" 
(covered by The Carpenters) were derived from the UFO enthusiasts' original telepathic message.
