The Landing (2013) - Something Extraordinary Landed on Australian Farm

A man returns to the Midwestern farm of his childhood on a desperate mission to unearth the horrifying truth of what landed there in the summer of 1960. Production filmed at the left over barn from the Kent farm set built for the production of Superman Returns (2006) in Breeza, New South Wales, Australia. THE LANDING is a Drama/Sci Fi short film produced by Perception Pictures as part of the late QPIX White Heat initiative.

Filmed in 2013 in Australia over the course of eight days on the Arri Alexa camera for approximately seventy thousand US dollars, The Landing was inspired, Tanner told, “From a dream I had where I was unearthing a buried spaceship in the middle of farmland. I became obsessed with the idea of the suppression of a UFO landing by the farmers on the land which it came down on, opposed to a government cover-up. It was a great seed to build a story around and figure out when and how it got there and whose perspective it would be told from. I was inspired by a lot of the great paranoia sci-fi of the 50’s and unabashedly Spielberg, Kubrick, and Terrence Malick.”

Directed by Josh Tanner. Starring: Henry Nixon, David Roberts, Tom Usher
