Following a crash landing, a group of young aliens is left stranded in Calbe, Saxony-Anhalt. Their first analyses seem to show that the town is uninhabited, but a trip into Calbe ends tragically with the death of two crew members. Panic breaks out on board the spaceship, and preparations are made for an emergency launch. But the chances of success are slim.

This short film was made during a workshop with the Friedrich Schiller Gymnasium theatre group in Calbe. The dialogue between the aliens on board their ship have been borrowed from the crew of the Nostromo in Ridley Scott’s film Alien, and re-edited into the mouths of the aliens in Calbe Encounters of the Third Kind. Frightened and desperate, they now face an unfathomable phenomenon: Calbe.
