“The Maury Island Incident”
Family-friendly film screening and Q&A about the 1947 Maury Island Incident, which prompted the original “Men in Black” appearance, popularized by Hollywood, presented by filmmakers Steve Edmiston and Scott Schaefer.
Based on declassified FBI documents, The Maury Island Incident tells the incredible, tragic and forgotten story of Harold Dahl, who on June 21, 1947, alleged a UFO sighting over Puget Sound, WA, sparking “the summer of the saucers,” the modern era of UFO obsession, the first appearance of “Men in Black” and a governmental battle over UFO sighting jurisdiction reaching directly to FBI Executive Director J. Edgar Hoover.
