Whenever life on Earth seems too dire, or simply too limiting to our imaginations, many of us look to the heavens for solace, sensing that somewhere out there, just maybe, another creature is looking back at us. Brad Abrahams’ new documentary introduces us to someone unusually invested in that vision of intelligent life on distant planets. David Huggins claims to have made contact repeatedly over the course of his 72 years—including the closest encounter of all: an interspecies romance.

Wondrous, fun and respectful, Love and Saucers lets Huggins tell his story without shame, and display his collection of surreal paintings documenting his astonishing experiences.

This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s Florida Focus Film Category
