Using rare archival footage and interviews, Children of the Stars is a feature length documentary chronicling a UFO contactee group as they relive their past lives on other planets by making their own science fiction films.
In 1973, Ruth Norman, a 73 year old widow and self described cosmic visionary purchased 67 acres of land in the mountains east of San Diego, California as a landing site for the Space Brothers, emissaries from the Intergalactic Confederation. Nearly 40 years later, a group of dedicated followers still await their arrival.
At the Unarius Academy of Science death does not exist, Nicola Tesla was a Space Brother, Satan drove a Cadillac and science fiction is real. To relive their pasts the students film their own sci-fi extravaganzas with the increasingly extravagant Ruth Norman as the star and the lines between fantasy and reality dissolve.
The film premiered at the Salt Lake City Film Festival in September 2012 and is now available on DVD and digital download. For more info visit www.childrenofthestarsfilm.com
