offers a rare on-camera interview with Bob Lazar,
who put Area 51
on the map 30 years ago...
Some of the details of Lazar's life are true and easily verifiable, while others strain credulity.
MIT, for instance, has no records of
Lazar ever being there, and Los Alamos has denied that he was
employed there (although journalist George Knapp apparently found a
listed in an internal phone book for Los Alamos).
No, but this is Lazar's story and he's sticking to it.
Corbell's previous documentaries profiled a surgeon who removes extraterrestrial implants and investigated Robert Bigelow's Skinwalker ranch (above video), which is an alleged hotbed of UFO activity, so he is in many ways the perfect person to tackle a profile of Lazar's truly out-of-this-world life.

Ever since Lazar first came forward with a story about his time at S-4 working on extraterrestrial spacecraft in 1989, he has grown more and more reluctant to speak about what he says he saw at Area 51.
new film is the first major interview Lazar has given about his
beliefs regarding extraterrestrial technology on Earth in nearly 30
In the interview, which is included in Corbell's film along with a lot of other archival footage from Lazar's time in the international spotlight, Lazar describes working on the propulsion systems for "nine flying saucers of extraterrestrial origin" in possession of the US military.

Shortly after Lazar's first interview, he broke anonymity and did several other interviews about his time at Area 51 under his own name. These were broadcast around the globe and turned the top secret military base into a pilgrimage destination for UFO believers.
As Knapp says in the film,
When Corbell met with Lazar in California, he made the case that he has no ulterior motives to lie about what he was working on in the mid-80s.
If anything, Lazar said, his decision to come forward with
this information changed his life for the worse...
The police response for a relatively routine investigation was huge, Lazar claims.
The entire office was filled
with dozens of authorities from every conceivable branch of law
enforcement, he says. The implication, Corbell's film hints, is that
the government was trying to spook Lazar back into silence.
In the film, Corbell produces a
declassified picture of a device that sort of matched Lazar's
description and Lazar comments that this is the first time he's seen
this device since working at the base.

When Lazar first came forward with his story about UFOs in Nevada,
element 115 hadn't been created in a lab yet. In 2003, however,
synthesized the element for the first time.
To date, only four
isotopes have been produced in a lab, each popping into existence
for a few fractions a second. According to Lazar, however, the
extraterrestrial craft he worked on used a stable version of element
115 to warp gravity around the craft and propel it forward.
Lazar might have been talking about element 115 more than a decade before it was produced in lab because aliens exist, or maybe he's just a really smart guy with a big imagination.
It's possible that someone with
his level of scientific knowledge wouldn't find it difficult to
describe the properties of a theoretical element in vague terms
based on its place in the periodic table.
At the same time, a 2016 New York Times report on the Pentagon's UFO-related activities brought the extraterrestrial question back into the public discourse in a serious way.
Indeed, the so-called
"tic-tac UFO" revealed by the Times acts awfully similar to the way
Lazar described the craft he was working on at S-4.
...the Most Famous Area 51 Whistleblower
The shows would always
create intrigue but always left you wanting more. I watched those
shows back in the 90's and early 2000's, never did I see or hear the
Thus, although I knew what I felt about Area 51, I simply wasn't sure how much evidence there truly was.
Bob used the name
"Dennis" for the interview and remained anonymous by hiding his
face. He stated he had to do this in order to protect himself as he
would get in trouble for what he was saying.
He also stated that the government knew there were technologies that could completely change our world as we know it and that they knew alien life existed.
His story became huge
very quickly and that's when things began to get difficult for Bob.
Bob's story goes worldwide.
It was at this location
that Lazar worked on flying saucers that were not of Earth origin
and was even given briefing
documents describing the
Grey aliens from a planet that orbited the twin binary star
system Zeta Reticuli with Earth for the past 10,000 years.
Because no one has been able to corroborate any of his stories ever since he went public...
The man was clearly
intelligent, knew what he was doing, and was highly trained, yet he
appeared to have been erased from the educational institutions that
The cover-ups are not
coming from a low level within institutions involved, they come from
very high up, and workers are compartmentalized so deeply within
these studies that they cannot possibly put all the pieces together
to tell a full story of what's happening.
All they have to do is
utter the words "a threat to national security," and they can get
anything they want done.
His story has never
changed and has been corroborated by many others.
A New Film About
Yet, Lazar claims the police response for what is truly was a routine investigation was well over the top.
Either way, they seem to be keeping a very close eye on Bob still.
This film allows you to connect with Lazar and his story in a way like never before. His testimony is truly incredible and seeing a true portrait piece of a man who's come out about one of the biggest stories ever to go public is riveting as you get to feel what he felt.
Bob claims himself that him coming out about this has made his life worse.
humble nature, and emotion truly come through in this film and it
illustrates just how tough it can be for people to come out and
share the truth.
For those who do not know
much about the subject, this is a very grounded and approachable way
to tackle the subject. Yes, you can show this to your friends or
family who think you're nuts for believing in ETs...
