NZ TV Premiere: British UFO Files
The History Channel – Thursday 18 October, 9.30pm
The British UFO Files reveals for the first time the secret history of alien aircraft investigations led by the most powerful forces within the British government. Featuring eye-witness accounts by top ranking military personnel, previously unseen top secret documentation and rare archive footage, the film examines in detail a cache of information ranging from the alleged production of Nazi UFOs to the landing of an alien spacecraft at a British air-force base.
A vérité-satire, The Festival is an ensemble comedy, told from the perspective of fictional IFC documentarian, Cookie. Cookie’s subject: Rufus Marquez, a quixotic young director embarking on his virgin voyage to the prestigious Mountain United Film Festival (MUFF). The Film is ‘’The Unreasonable Truth of Butterflies’’. The goal is a distribution deal. And the pressure is on. “The Festival is everything a mock documentary should be: sassy, glib, subtle, biting and consistently hilarious’’ – Ray Richmond, The Hollywood Reporter.
