The trailer for Calling E.T. which will be at SXSW 2009.

Just imagine that we were to get in touch with extraterrestrial intelligence. Now, in our lifetime! There is a small group of people who are seriously taking this unlikely scenario into account. Their daily life is spent looking for signals from extraterrestrial civilisations and wondering how we, earthlings, should present ourselves if we were to make real contact. There is a protocol for the big moment. The wish to speak as one world. But will we manage to do that? Old tensions dating from the Cold War between the West and Russia, are surfacing again in this area. Can contact with extraterrestrial beings help to solve the problems of our planet?

But what are we to imagine 'extraterrestrial intelligence' is like? Are they like us people; gregarious animals, anxious and violent? Do they see a future enemy in us? Or has E.T. evolved further and will they teach us people how to interact with one another? The film gives a penetrating insight into our human fears and longings.
