Film distributor The Orchard just picked up the rights to release a documentary called Unacknowledged: An Exposé of the Greatest Secret in Human History.

This unidentified flying object was captured on video over Southern California. The UFO—which is producing a corkscrew tail that seems to indicate rotational movement—ejects some round thing that flies into another direction at a faster speed than the object itself. What can it all be?
The Landing is a powerful short film directed by Josh Tanner that tells the story of a mysterious UFO crash in the 1960s and the truth that is revealed when it's found again in the present day.

There's nothing more befuddling than looking up at the sky and seeing a strange light appear out of nowhere. Your adult brain tells you it can't be what you want it to be but when you check with adult-brained officials, they're clueless too. That's what just happened in Hawaii. A mysterious zigzagging light popped up…
As a name, Hessdalen may be more familiar to UFO watchers than scientists.

A sinister "black triangle" UFO hovered over the French city of Lyon just long enough for a witness to get a few frames of this mysterious object. Could it be one of the rumored TR-3B nuclear-powered anti-gravity ships made by America's stealth contractors.
