French Guianese filmmaker siblings Audrey and Maxime Jean-Baptiste manipulate audiovisual archives from the National Centre for Space Studies and black screen to create a hybrid depiction of an alien invasion right here on Earth—the dislocating feeling of being in another country while still in your own that an entire generation experienced when the Guianese Space Centre landed in Kourou.
