S03E09 – Alan Stivelman

Witness of Another World

Strange phenomena are pervasive throughout our world. Millions of people have reported experiences that cannot be explained with our modern understanding of reality, space-time, and the universe. Argentinian filmmaker, Alan Stivelman set out to investigate one of these occurrences with his latest film, Witness of Another World – an intimate documentary that intends to unveil the mystery of a spectacular close encounter case witnessed by a lonely gaucho. This film is moving, thought-provoking, and intense as hell.

This week Alan joins Andrew and CK to walk them through his experiences of creating the film and his time with Juan Perez – the focus of the documentary. The conversation explores so much more than ufology and extraterrestrial abductions; this episode includes flavors of consciousness, reality, and mental health. This is definitely one for the books.

“Witness of Another World is unique in showing the long-term meaning of such encounters on people and those around them. That has never been done before, and especially in a real, non-fiction setting where the people who laugh or cry on the screen are not actors”.

— Dr. Jacques Vallée

“Witness of Another World approaches with extraordinary sensitivity to those who, like its protagonist, have lived experiences in which nobody believes. But it also achieves something surprising: it helps interpret what happened, involving the viewer in an emotional adventure that is set by slow fire and explodes in the consciousness of those who approach the unknown from the heart”.

— Javier Sierra
