Greentech: Maury Island Incident
August 13 @ 6:00 pm
TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 at 6PM
Before Vashon was wEIrD…there was “The Maury Island Incident”!
Based on declassified FBI documents, “The Maury Island Incident” tells the incredible, tragic, and forgotten story of Harold Dahl, who on June 21, 1947, alleged a UFO sighting off Maury Island, sparking ‘the summer of the saucers,’ the modern era of UFO obsession, the first appearance of a ‘Man in Black’ and a governmental battle over UFO sighting jurisdiction reaching directly to FBI Executive Director J. Edgar Hoover.
On Tuesday night, Aug. 13, 2019, starting at 6 p.m. at the Vashon Theatre, come see/hear a presentation from Screenwriter/Producer Steve Edmiston and Director/Producer Scott Schaefer, along with a screening of the award-winning 30-minute film, followed by a filmmaker Q&A.
This is a fundraiser for the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association, and suggested donation is $10.
