This week, we talk indie comics, play a game and explore extra-terrestrial love. Not a bad way to spend an hour.
Don’t miss this Friday’s Geek Hard as Andrew and Mr. Green have two great guests coming your way. The first is documentary filmmaker Brad Abrahams. He recently released his first feature length doc, Love and Saucers, about a man who claims to have had multiple encounters with aliens has created a series of paintings to explain his experiences. Brad will be on to tell us all about the making of Love and Saucers and more. Here’s some more info on the film:
The strange story of David Huggins, a 74 year-old man who claims to have had a lifetime of encounters with otherworldly beings – including an inter-species romance with an extra-terrestrial woman (with whom he lost his virginity to). As a form of self-therapy, he chronicled it all in surreal oil paintings, few of which have ever been seen. Filmed in an intimate, non-judgemental style, Love and Saucers lets David tell his story. This in turn lets the audience decide what is fact, fiction, and everything in-between.
For more on Love and Saucers, check out the film’s website and be sure to listen to our interview with Brad this Friday.
