Narrated by Peter Weller "STRANGE SEPTEMBERS" Feature-Length UFO Documentary - on VOD April 1, 2016



The Two World-Famous UFO Experiences Took Place In New Hampshire In September 1961 and September 1965

(Los Angeles, CA - March 23, 2016) Strange Septembers: The Hill Abduction & The Exeter Encounter -- Narrated by Peter Weller is a feature-length documentary which explores two of the most famous and well-documented UFO encounters in history. One being the 1961 terrifying abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, and the other, the 1965 UFO sightings seen by dozens, including the credible and reliable sources of Navy enlistee Norman Muscarello, who was horrified as he ran for his life, and two Exeter Police Officers, Eugene Bertrand and David Hunt. The documentary will be released on VOD and Digital Download on April 1, 2016 on Vimeo On Demand, announced Directors Jeff & Jess Finn today. 

"What can these two controversial UFO cases tell us about where we've been, where we are, and where we're going, in terms of potential human interaction with intelligent extraterrestrials? If either of these landmark close-encounter cases occurred as the participants claimed, we are then faced with the shocking reality of a pair of the most important incidents in human history. For those clinging to a rigid worldview, the Hill Abduction and the Exeter Encounter could prove to be mind expanding as well as life changing," says director Jeff Finn.

Narrated by Peter Weller, the documentary features new revealing insights after more than a year of research, contact and interviews with over 100 relatives, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances associated with the principal witnesses of the Hill Abduction and the Exeter Encounter. Interviewees include James Earl Jones and Estelle Parsons, who starred in the famous 1975 television movie The UFO Incident: The Betty & Barney Hill Abduction, ufologists Stanton Friedman and Kathleen Marden, former U.S. Air Force and Army officers, Lt. Alan Brandt and Col. George Rubin, and author John Fuller's son, Judd.
