Juan lives a solitary existence on a remote farm ever since he witnessed a UFO event. Filmmaker Alan Stivelman -together with the help of famous astrophysicist Jacques Vallée – begin an epic journey to help Juan in understanding the deep meaning of his close encounter. This true story shows the long-term consequences of close encounters, proving that no one is exempt from a potential contact.
“Witness of another world” is unique in showing the long term meaning of such encounters on people and those around them. That has never been done before, and especially in a real, non-fiction setting where the people who laugh or cry on the screen are not actors”- Dr. Jacques Vallée
“I am deeply touched by this film and your wise and graceful style and sensitivity. Thank you for sharing it with me, and thank you for the very personal effort it must have taken to make it. Bravo! Again, thank you for this unique and memorable film. I think itis the closest depiction I have seen of Jacques’ philosophy about the UFO Phenomenon”- Douglas Trumbull. VFX of Close Encounter of the Third Kind, Blade Runner, 2001.
