CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH EXTRATERRESTRIAL BEINGS ARE REAL – AND ONE HILARIOUS, WILD MAN HAS THE EXTRAORDINARY VIDEO EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT.
CURSE OF THE MAN WHO SEES UFOS
An Alien Hunter Strives to Prove the Existence of UFOs – and That He’s Not Nuts – in This Feel-Good Film, on Digital Platforms and DVD in December From Virgil Films
New York, NY (October 31, 2016) – A man waging a lonely campaign to prove alien beings are visiting Earth gets a chance to spread the word in the thought-provoking – and hilarious – new documentary CURSE OF THE MAN WHO SEES UFOS. The entertaining film will convert skeptics to believers – but more importantly, reveal a boisterous, eternally optimistic American character – when it arrives on HD digital platforms and DVD from Virgil Films on December 6, 2016.
Christo Roppolo claims to have been videotaping and communicating with UFOs around Monterey, California, for several years. Intent on getting his stunning information out to a wide audience, he contacted director Justin Gaar in 2013 to begin creating a film about his sightings. Skeptical of the footage Christo had shot, but intrigued by his eccentricities and wild stories, Justin begins spending time with Christo hunting UFOs along California’s beautiful Central Coast.
When a crop circle appears in Monterey County and becomes international news, Christo is validated in his belief in alien contact. A shocked Justin 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.” The two travel up and down the Central Coast and through the Central Valley hunting for UFO activity.
In CURSE OF THE MAN WHO SEES UFOS, Christo comes across like a traveling UFO preacher, explaining the sightings to passersby, asking about their own experiences with the unknown, spreading his gospel of extraterrestrial salvation. In his strange and wondrous journey with the passionate and endearing Christo, Justin finds that sometimes aliens from space can tell us more about our own humanity here on Earth.
Simon Foster’s Screen-Space praised the film, saying, “Dissecting an aging, eccentric UFOlogist’s obsession with lights in the sky along California’s central coast, CURSE OF THE MAN WHO SEES UFOS deftly combines the joyous ‘I Want to Believe’ ethos of fan-favorite X-Files episodes with an unexpected and ingratiatingly warm human insight.”
