Strange Attractor and Perception Management present a special preview screening of the acclaimed feature-length documentary Mirage Men, with Q&A, after live music from Urthona.
In 1979 the Air Force Office of Special Investigations began a psychological warfare campaign against local engineer Paul Bennewitz to persuade him that the area was under attack by hostile extraterrestrials. The results are somewhere between The Manchurian Candidate and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
The screening of Mirage Men will be followed by Q&A with film makers Roland Denning, Kypros Kyprianou, John Lundberg and Mark Pilkington.
The evening will begin with a special live performance of music from the soundtrack by Urthona, whose music has been described by Julian Cope as “a righteous yammering of liquid infinity”.
