USA / 2013 / 80 min / BluRay / English
Stan Romanek is at the center of world’s most documented extraterrestrial contact story, and the multitude of evidence accumulated over the past decade has convinced thousands around the world his story is true. This documentary film takes audiences on a journey through Stan’s past, present and future with one goal in mind: Help the world understand that no one knowingly chooses the challenges Stan and his family have endured. His experiences have forever changed his views on life, religion, science and the essence of humanity. He has been emotionally, physically and psychologically altered during this journey, and so have the people he’s encountered along the way. Simply put, the film illustrates how an ordinary man and his family have been transformed by extraordinary experiences. Some viewers may not believe in life beyond planet Earth when they leave the theatre, but they will surely believe Stan does. The film's intention is not to prove the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrials, but it does pose the question: What if this is all true? "extraordinary: the stan romanek story" is about one man’s evolution through a life he did not choose and the messages he is driven to deliver to all mankind.
