X-Conference 2008 Documentaries
The X-Conference focuses on the political, governmental and social aspects relating to extraterrestrial-related phenomena – exopolitics. It is produced by PRG as part of an ongoing advocacy effort seeking to end the government imposed truth embargo on formal acknowledgement of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - Disclosure.
Three of these documentaries deal with the two most significant and challenging exopolitical issues which government must address sooner or later: 1) the continuing intrusion into the nation's airspace by craft of unknown origin for which the government offers no appropriate explanation, and 2) tens of thousands of detailed reports from citizens who claim direct interaction with non-human entities, assumed to be extraterrestrial, both welcome and unwelcome. The number of citizens in this circumstance is not known, but has been estimated to be large.
Relating to the first issue is the documentary The Phoenix Lights which recounts the historic and still unexplained Arizona mass sighting of 1997 with riveting new data and personal interviews in an updated version of the internationally acclaimed and award winning film. The documentary is a collaborative effort between Lynne D. Kitei, M.D. (executive producer/director, author & a key witness) and Steve Lantz (producer, director of photography, editor & composer). It is based on the bestselling book, The Phoenix Lights...A Skeptic's Discovery That We Are Not Alone, in which 30 credible eyewitnesses, children, scientists, military, pilots and experts give compelling testimony to the reality of these mysterious global visitations.
Two documentaries address the second issue. Springing from the work of Dr. John Mack Touched is the personal exploration by Laurel Chiten into the lives and minds of alleged abductees, or experiencers, around the world, and of her path through skepticism, fear, insomnia, fascination, confusion that led to many questions. What happens when the unexplained intrudes into our lives, and how do lives and relationships respond when credulity is strained to a breaking point? This is the leading question she set out to explore. This is a film about the human experience — about longing for connection and fear of separation.
Odyssey chronicles the intense personal journey of Santa Fean Joyce Libutti, an "ordinary" wife and mother whose profound and startling encounters with benevolent alien beings have transformed her life and motivated her to risk telling her story -- and theirs -- to the world.
The fourth documentary, Staya Erusa, is a challenging tour around the outer perimeter of human understanding. It is a road map to the territory outside the box of consensus thinking where the leaders of nations will have to go if they wish to understand the basis for the new realities that lie on the other side of Disclosure.
Conference speakers and keynoters include: Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo Astronaut and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences); Paul Hellyer (former Defence and Deputy Prime Minister of Canada); George Noory (host of Coast to Coast AM); Drs. John Alexander, Bruce Maccabee and C. B. Scott Jones (members of the legendary Aviary), Dr. Thomas Valone (founder of Integrity Research Institute); Dr. Jesse Marcel, Jr. (the most important living Roswell witness); Angelia Joiner (lead reporter of the Stephenville, Texas sightings); researcher Grant Cameron; political activists Stephen Bassett, Victor Viggiani and Mike Bird; historian Richard Dolan; and authors Robert Emenegger, Rob Simone and Terry Hansen. Stephen Bassett and former CNN News anchor Cheryll Jones will co-host the event.
Media passes are available for reporters and documentarists. Two media rooms have been reserved.
There will be a post-event press conference on Monday, April 21 at 10 am in the Lisagor Room at the National Press Club, 13th Floor, 14th and F Streets, NW, Washington, DC. Stephen Bassett along with other conference speakers will make a number of announcements. It is open to the public.
