The Original X-File - Alien Contact & Men in Black

Steve Edmiston, known for writing and producing the award-winning “The Maury Island Incident” short film, which was locally produced and shot, brings a unique, historic perspective to this intriguing topic.

“On August 1, 1947, the tragic crash of a B-25 bomber in Washington State triggered an FBI investigation of ‘The Maury Island Incident‘—an infamous Northwest UFO sighting, and history’s first alleged encounter with the so-called ‘Men in Black.’ “The FBI’s records from 1947, which were sealed for decades, reveal Cold War fears, jurisdictional disputes, cover-ups, false confessions, a courageous FBI Special Agent, and the hands-on involvement of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. “Relying on the FBI records, this talk exposes a Washington story that shapes our current UFO narratives, from 1950’s pulp magazines to the ubiquitous X-Files and Men in Black film franchises. Also examined: how the Northwest’s unique position in UFO history is challenged by others that assert contradictory narratives.”
