For several years, Gianni Motti has been observing the Raël Sect. Raëlians believe that aliens landed on earth 25'000 years ago, and created human beings, animals and plants through cloning technologies, out of dead material. According to their own latest figures, the sect counts 55'000 devotees.

It was founded in 1973 by French journalist Claude Vorilhon, who calls himself Raël and lives in Quebec, Canada. In 1997, he founded the Clonaid society in Las Vegas. In Motti's video piece, Ufo-Cult from 2003, one sees sect leader Raël and Brigitte Boisselier, the doctor who claimed to have cloned the first baby on December 26, 2002. The two are standing in an idyllic landscape, smiling and popping soap bubbles. Is the bubble a symbol for childhood regained, or a mere delusion that is about to burst?
