The Strangeness Index Presenter Series: Curse of the Man Who Sees UFOs + Panel Discussion on The Truth Behind UFOs Moderated by Chris Rutkowski

Sat, Nov 20 / 7pm
Directed by Justin Garr
2016, USA, 91 min

Christo Roppolo claims to have been videotaping and communicating with UFOs around Monterey, CA for several years. He contacted filmmaker Justin Gaar in 2013 to begin creating a film about his sightings. Skeptical of the footage but intrigued by Christo’s wild stories, Justin begins spending time with Christo while he hunts down UFOs along California’s beautiful central coast. When a crop circle appears in Monterey County and becomes international news, Christo’s beliefs are validated and Justin, shocked, begins investigating the source of the crop circle and how Christo knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s being contacted by his ‘brothers from space’. Their unlikely partnership spawned this oddball documentary and a sci-fi odyssey unlike any other.
