Filmmaker and researcher Jennifer Stein and experiencer/author Travis Walton join me for conversation about their new documentary film, “Travis: The True Story of Travis Walton.” From the movie website: “Travis Walton, while working in the Sitgreaves National Forest on November 5, 1975, clearing underbrush with a team of 6 other men, stumbled upon a 40 foot hovering disc of unknown origin on the crest of a ridge. While leaving the forest that day around 6 pm, Travis, convinced the craft would depart before any of them had a good chance to look at the craft, jumped from the passenger side of their work truck and ran toward the craft for a close up look. That decision would change his life and that of his work crew for the rest of their lives.”
The experience that Travis Walton had with that craft and occupants – and being missing for five days, and, the ordeal that the six men on the logging team had, is arguably one of the most documented UFO close encounter cases on record. The film tells the story of not only what happened on November 5, 1975, but as importantly what happened in the days, months and years to come.
