What an awesome movie by awesome film producer Jen Stein! Once you see "Travis"...you will never be the same! It's such an important film for historical reasons with dramatic twists and turns so well documented. Jen touches the real life emotional impact the UFO event continues to have on Travis Walton, crew, law enforcement officials and all involved, even to this day more than 40 years later! A must watch for all!
Jennifer Stein's documentary TRAVIS is perhaps one of the very best documentaries I have ever seen. Travis' Nov.5th, 1975 abduction experience is a historical, psychological and geopolitical event that is beautifully and accurately stored on film for future generations. (more…)
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Filmmaker Jen Stein historically, physically and emotionally took me there! This well executed documentary on Travis Waltons outrageous story of alien abduction made me want to embrace all the men involved especially Travis to tell them they were safe, it would be ok and that they were modern day heroes. I learned, I felt and I believe!”
“I viewed “The True Story of Travis Walton” with great interest. Jennifer Stein did a commendable job of documenting this remarkable account. It is yet another reminder of the urgent importance of bringing about full disclosure by all governments of their complete files and physical evidence concerning UFOs and extraterrestrials.”
I have to say congratulations, I absolutely love the segment. The droning of the music heightens the suspense for me. The look of terror on Travis’s face is believable. It draws me in. Very well done.
This feature length documentary film is about the life of Travis Walton and about his 1975 abduction experience, as well as the lives of others touched by this event, as well as its greater implications to our understanding of the UFO phenomenon overall. As an Associate Producer of this film I’m biased of course, but I can tell you for a fact that “Travis” is not just a world-class UFO documentary. It’s a world-class documentary, period. (more…)
