Una McKevitt, Ireland
Alien Documentary | Project Arts Centre (Cube) | Oct 4-15 2016

“Who’s that down there in that little blue planet down there?
Ah look. It’s those savages, at it again.”
Three men are talking. Same as every other day.

Cycle lanes, convicted footballers, Dylan Thomas, alien invasions, the price of mackerel...
But it’s the stories in between that make this a day they won’t forget.
In a departure from her earlier documentary practice Una McKevitt blends fiction and reality to create characters who, through their everyday conversations and the personal histories they share, demonstrate the power of companionship and courage.
Alien Documentary considers the possibilities of a new world, where the mysteries of the universe have started to  unravel and there is nothing left to hide.
“There were 4 billion stars discovered last year. Do the math.
It is next to impossible that we are alone.”
