NY based director/editor Courtney Marquard profiles a small town in upstate New York, where residents have seen strange things in the sky for the last century. After thousands of sightings, this quiet hamlet has come to be known as the UFO capital of the world. The film follows two locals as they share their personal encounter stories, and attend the annual UFO festival - where the town comes together over their shared awe for the unknown.
Marquard <<going into the project I was a little skeptical, but after visiting the town several times with the crew, and getting to know Bill and Linda, you start to wonder what else is out there. In the end, whether these sightings are real or not doesn’t really matter to me. I’m not interested in finding the proof. I’m just fascinated by the way these stories challenge us to open our minds to new possibilities, and put our small world into perspective.>>
