ABOUT THE MAURY ISLAND INCIDENT
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. This event sparked “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.

Join us for a film screening/Q&A about the 1947 Maury Island Incident, which prompted the original “Men in Black” appearance, popularized by Hollywood, presented by directors Steve Edmiston and Scott Schaefer.
