This is a rare documentary by French filmmaker, Stephane Allix about the alien abduction phenomenon, featuring several experiencers who had worked with the Chairman of Harvard University’s Psychology Department, Dr. John E. Mack.
Sadly, Mack only appears briefly in the film, as he was killed in a hit-and-run car accident, while he crossed a street in London. He was lecturing in the UK, at the time.
Scenes of Mack interviewing young schoolchildren who’d experienced a mass-sighting together are particularly impressive. The teachers interviewed afterwards are also very convinced that something extraordinary had in fact occurred; that it would have been impossible for the children to have have faked this mass event. Moreover, the individual interviews with the students are very compelling, displaying the earnest artlessness of young children, each explaining the same event and their own reactions and feelings, with slightly different words.
Although other abduction documentaries have been broadcast on cable TV in the US, this one does not have the sensationalism or intrusive graphics and music, so often found in TV documentaries of this genre.
This film has a more intimate pace and a more substantive approach, allowing the experiencers to explain events with more clarity (and therefore, with more credibility) than is commonly granted to witnesses in similarly-themed US productions.
John Edward Mack M.D. was a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer before he began his exploration of the abduction phenomenon and he remains to this day the most respected academic to have studied this subject.
