EXPEDITION cover image
Expedition is a short student made film, by high school students, that shows a view of our planet which is none too inspiring. It makes you think about what an alien who visited here might actually think about our planet and how we have neglected taking care of it.

The storyline follows aliens that come to planet Earth and witness its demise.

The visuals of this film are the story. Two young men arrive on earth on a space ship that looks like a rock. Dressed identically, they observe some of the decaying buildings on this planet - factories, housing, electrical power stations - all of which show a civilization breaking down. There is only one image of a snow covered field that shows anything of nature. There is no dialogue, not commentary, only one image after another and, in the end, they simply depart on their rocklike spaceship. The visuals are well shot. The editing is seamless. The background music is hauntingly poignant. Created by Noah Harrison, performed by Romeo Keyser and Matthew Wilson, directed by Milo Smith and with an original score by Benjamin Harrison.

The message of this film is to look at our planet from the eyes of an outsider and notice what it might look like in those eyes.

I give Expedition 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
