Father and son must face the unknown in this sci-fi short film

New, 21 comments

More often than not, our minds unconsciously see an enemy in the face of the unknown. That's precisely the case in The Landing, a finely-shot Australian short film that explores the bond between a father and his son after a UFO crash-lands on their midwestern farm in 1960. What's inside the UFO is a surprise, but both father and son imbue the mysterious black sphere with meaning that says far more about themselves as human beings than the entity inside the craft.
