About the Project

Calling All Earthlings tells the story of seminal desert UFO contactee George Van Tassel, his iconic Integratron dome, and of the communities nearby. In the process, the documentary reveals how Cold War science and psyche inspired beliefs about life beyond this planet that remain wildly popular. As Van Tassel's diverse neighbors tell his fantastical story a second portrait emerges -- one of a region scorched by sun, challenged by economics and education, yet lifted up by imagination, politics, community, and heart.
