Based on the book of the same name by British journalist Mark Pilkington (also one of the film’s producers), this project puts forward the argument that the U.S. government planted misinformation about extraterrestrials and UFOs to distract the American public and foreign governments from its own advanced technology programs. Central characters in the film include former U.S. Air Force counterintelligence officer Richard Doty, who shares some of the lengths his department went to in order to keep peoples’ eyes on the skies. The nuggets unearthed in Mirage Men should be of great interest to an audience beyond conspiracy theorists and science-fiction fans.
