THE VISITOR is unlike most of the sci-fi short films we feature here on The 7th Matrix.
Clocking in at just over two minutes, this experimental sci-fi short takes us to the surface of Mars via the perspective of a lone astronaut - portrayed by the film’s creator and director Pete Majarich.
The short does not have a typical narrative structure or plot. Instead, the stunning cinematography of THE VISITOR inspires wonder at the possibility of humans one day walking across the face of the red planet.
Recent narratives about Mars - along with the private initiatives of tech billionaires - have reignited public interest in space travel, and more specifically, the exploration of the fourth planet from the sun.
However, some romanticism surrounds just how immense, arduous, and daunting it will be to successfully send humans to an alien world with an environment hostile to life as we know it
By following a astronaut on his solo explorations across the unimaginably vast, awe-inspiring Martian terrain, the short reminds viewers of how colossal a feat it will be for humans to travel to and explore earth’s red neighbor.
