Travis: The Story of Travis Walton

Run time:(90M)

Categories: Documentary Feature

Synopsis:

Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton, recounts one of the most well documented UFO cases of all time. The event took place in the Sitgreaves National Forest near Heber, Arizona on November 5th 1975 when a logging crew of 7 men encounter a craft of unknown origin. One of the crew members gets to close to the object, when the craft reacts with a light beam that shocks the entire crew, and knocks one of them unconscious. The event changed their lives forever. The film documents how these men struggle to make sense of the event enduring humiliation, job losses and lifelong ridicule regarding their experiences. Numerous production companies have supported the production, providing special effects, artwork, animation, and re-enactments to bring this story to life as it has never been done before. Travis’s story became a book called “Fire in the Sky” by Travis Walton, and a movie by the same name (1993), made by Paramount Pictures. The Travis Walton UFO story will be commemorated this year with a conference celebrating the 40th anniversary of this incident.
Jennifer W. Stein has made the definitive documentary about Travis Walton. This film has been two years in the making and will be shown at the 40th Anniversary conference in Arizona. The film has recently won two EBE Film Festival awards: the People’s Choice and the Best Long Documentary Film at the February 2015 Open Minds International UFO Congress.
